Does anyone know of any history and/or tonal analysis done on the
bells of Tillingham?
They are usually referred to as a 9cwt minor 6 nominally in Bb but
everytime I visit and try to work out which is the "wrong" note I
usually end up picking a different bell and opinions of other ringers
in the tower are usually divided.
The bells with the exception of the treble, are I presume the work of
1 1889 John Warners & Sons, London
2 1513-1522 William Culverden
3 bef.1469 Henry Jordan
4 1684 John Darbie
5 1707 Henry Pleasant
6 1684 John Darbie
