I was led to believe that a composite frame was installed at Holy 
Trinity and it was left in place when the bells were transferred to 
S.Silas,Blackburn(the single bell and cast iron framesides from 
S.Silas were scrapped about the same time as the Taylor eight(ex Holy 
Trinity) were installed there-they were hung at S.Silas in 1984 and 
are in a ten bell frame).
I shall probably be seeing a few of the people involved with the 
removal of the Holy Trinity bells at the next Branch meeting(4th May)
and will endevour to confirm that the frame is still there.
