What is the source the bell tower ringtone on my iPhone 3G?

I heard the exact same sound on an episode of Madeline, and am wondering if maybe the recording is from a famous cathedral.

As a bell ringer, I can tell you that this is not from a traditional change-ringing tower, which probably rules out just about any place in the UK. That might help you narrow it down.

It comes out of the Hollywood Edge sound effects collection. I don't know the source, but I was pulling files for some church bells out of my collections the other day and I came across it.
Side note - working as a sound designer, I can't make it through an hour of TV without hearing at least one sound cue that I know from my collections somewhere.
