Looking forward to the write up Bill. 
Perhaps this bell should be listed for preservation due to the 
fact that it is the largest existing steel bell in the U.K,and steel 
bells are no longer cast in the U.K.
It is sad that many people "rubbish" Naylor Vickers work 
nowadays,when in fact there are some good examples of their work 
still in existance.
