Oranges and Lemons

I've never heard the bells of St Clement Danes, The Strand, London before, even though I've been hearing about them since I was very young. This morning's Bells on Sunday put that omission right. Hear them while you can!

The Radio 4 presenter told us that it's believed that the tenth bell was added to allow the tune of Oranges and Lemons to be played. Which is nice. 

Sadly they didn't play Oranges and Lemons today, ringing out the changes on London Surprise Royal instead. Which is still nice.

I do like bells.
