The Bells at Trinity Church

There are a total of 23 bells in the tower at Trinity Church.

These 23 include the only set of twelve "full circle" change ringing bells in the United States, cast in 2006 by the English bell foundry Taylors, Eayre & Smith, and donated by British businessman and philanthropist Martin "Dill" Faulkes. These are the bells which are rung every week by the Trinity Ringers, and can be heard ringing out every Sunday morning in lower Manhattan

The remaining eleven are "chime" bells, which mark the hours, some of which were cast in the 18th century.
