The Bells

The bells are housed in a detached tower which is part of the 13th century gateway known as Porth y Twr. They were hung here in the 1930s after an anonymus donor paid for the tower to be repaired and strengthened. The original bells had been hung in the tower of the cathedral but they were removed in 1730 because of the danger of the tower collapsing. The only mediaeval bell left is in the Exhibition in the Tower Gate. Perhaps some of the metal in the present fifth bell is also from the earlier ring. There are ten bells in the ring.
