Probably the first and last time Bow's tenor and Wooburn's 7th will 
be mentioned in the same breath! I will have to go away and count up 
more carefully now.

So, joint leaders at this early stage. Anyone have a claim for more 
than 73 words on a ringing bell?


PS - one heck of an inscription on the French bell formerly at 
Sevenoaks. Would this have been created using the usual reverse 
lettering on the cope technique, or by the lost wax method?
