The Bells of the Anglican Diocese of Leeds

At Easter 2014 the dioceses of Ripon and Leeds, Bradford, and Wakefield ceased to be and became the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales. Some parishes at the Western edge of the Bradford Diocese were transferred to Blackburn Diocese and similarly in the South parishes were transferred to Sheffield Diocese. In 2016 the name was revised to the Diocese of Leeds with Anglican inserted when required to distinguish it from the similarly named Roman Catholic Diocese.

The newly created diocese is divided into five episcopal areas each of which corresponds to an archdeaconry. Each of these is sub-divided into a number (between three and six) of deaneries.

The purpose of this website is to include details of all the bells which are in the geographical area of the diocese: those in Anglican churches, churches of other denominations as well as those in secular buildings.
