[Bell Historians] St John's Gloucester

I think that it went to the shortlived bell museum in the tower of the former St Michael's Gloucester. Quite a few bell artefacts found their way there and there was certainly a bell hung for ringing.

When Gloucester City Council acquired the tower as part of their Tourist Information Centre, all these exhibits were removed; in fact all that is left in the tower other than the rope holes are the two wrought-iron girders on which the trebles of the ten removed in 1956 were first hung by their founders JT, and on which cast iron lowside frames were later erected by G&J, which were transferred to the Cathedral in 1956 with the aforementioned bells.

Drop a line to Mary Bliss and ask her (nicely) and I'm sure she'll help.

Does anyone know what happened to the 4th of the ring of six from St John's,
Gloucester? The tenor was recast as the treble at the cathedral, and 1,2,3,5
are now at Winstone.
