The Bells of Tiverton

The Tiverton Museum article on page 23 in this month's edition of the Mid Devon One Magazine is all about various bells in Tiverton.

The chapel at John Waldron's almshouse (Wellbrook Street) has what is believed to be the oldest bell in Devon to be inscribed with a date. The bell (1539) is older than the almshouse – completed after 1539 – and was made in Kleve (Cleves), located in Germany near the border with the Netherlands.

The bells of St Peter's Church have featured on BBC Radio 4's Bells on Sunday.
