The chime at Lowe House was very playable at the Liverpool branch
meeting on 12th June 1999, prior to ringing at the two churches in St.

The chime in the Beachams Building is still working and sounding the hours.
The basement of the tower and the near part of the building is now a
brewery run by the local College (I think?) and I have had a few sessions
in there listening to the bells chiming above.
