At one time there was a plan to put a ring of ten in this tower. 
Graham Austin advised the City Council that the cost would be less 
than the cost of two buses. I think it was Derek Hatton who 
scuppered the project. He had been taught to ring at Childwall? by 
Mike Dodd? and had been booted out for being too bolshy.I rang there 
once and remember them being in their original fittings. We rang 
Grandsire Doubles with the hour bell 'clocked in'.--- In
