Don't think G&J retuned the back eight at Newcastle - just added trebles, t=
hen did rehang in the tower. There is a contemporary weight (1732) for the =
tenor, I think.

Congratulations, Michael, on the upgrades to what was already a most=20
excellent site. I must get around to collating the details and photos=20
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=20
Newcastle under Lyme - weights of the back 8. You say that they were=20
retuned by Gilletts in 1928. Some years ago I asked Alan Buswell to=20
check the G & J records, and all he could find was the two 1928=20
trebles to ten. I have an uneasy feeling that the back eight might=20
not have been retuned until the 1953 rehanging, in which case I fear=20
that the details will be in the final G & J tuning book which has=20
tragically been lost.
