Another ex-three that hasn't (I think) been mentioned, is St.John's, Eastbo=
urne (Sussex) - a Taylor three of 1911, 1 26.5 4-0-22 E, 2 33.5 7-2-22 B, a=
nd 3 39" 22-2-5 E. These were 1, 4 and 8 of eight, hung for ringing in a lo=
wside frame. I've heard that were only ever rung once or twice - and the ba=
nd that rang there in the 60s or 70s had to drill rope holes in the (origin=
al) floors. Sold fairly recently, and the tenor is currently at Taylors aw=
aiting despatch as the tenor of the remodelled ring at Hobart Cathedral.

According to RW 8 September 1911, the parish was offered a ring of twelve b=
ells, but because of local opposition only three were installed
