The city of DERBY lies on the banks of the River Derwent. Its original church was said to have been founded by King Edmund 1 around 943AD. In the 14C it was replaced by a more substantial building but this too suffered from damage and was eventually pulled down. What exists today is the later structure built in 1785 but incorporating the original Tower of the 1530s. It is dedicated to All Saints and has 10 very special bells. It is claimed they are THE OLDEST RING OF 10 BELLS IN THE WORLD. The largest weighs 19cwt and is nearly 500 years old! And these magnificent bells will be ringing out across the land to remind everyone that April 23rd is ST.GEORGE’S day.
