Heavitree, Exeter, would be another good one to look at from this 
period (same year. The tenor is quite thick - 26 cwt in Eb. They're 
superb bells.

Anyone looked at Brewood? They're supposed to be the last Taylor 
pre-Simpson ring. Another interesting one would be Merthyr Tydfil - 
cast in 1893 but stored at the foundry until the tower was completed 
in 1896, and apparently tuned again prior to despatch.
