The Bells

Following four decades of fundraising and planning, and the extreme generosity of the bell donors detailed below, 13 new bells were installed in 2010. In particular our thanks go the the Cathedral Trust for their support.

The bells are named after St Alban and the 12 apostles, as follows:
