Stay awake at the back! It weren't Leeds; we know that is 518 Hz (C-18).
It was Escrick we were debating. We know that the pitch of this before
tuning was 517.5 Hz (C-19), but we don't know what it is now. The note
(which must come from Whitechapel) generally cited is B, but Andrew
thinks it's a flat C. Anyone with access fancy having a look in
Whitechapel's records to see what the actual frequency is...
