Congratulations, Michael, on the upgrades to what was already a most 
excellent site. I must get around to collating the details and photos 
that I have to fill in some of the remaining gaps.
One gap that someone on the list may be able to help with is 
Newcastle under Lyme - weights of the back 8. You say that they were 
retuned by Gilletts in 1928. Some years ago I asked Alan Buswell to 
check the G & J records, and all he could find was the two 1928 
trebles to ten. I have an uneasy feeling that the back eight might 
not have been retuned until the 1953 rehanging, in which case I fear 
that the details will be in the final G & J tuning book which has 
tragically been lost.
