> 3. Bristol St Nicholas has a curfew bell, hung on a ringing headstock with gudgeons and bearings, but no other fittings except a clock-type hammer which sounds the curfew from 9 till 9.07, when it is working. The bell is the flat 7th in 10; the other 3 bells are the 3rd, 6th and tenor of a 30-cwt C# ten, hanging in the super Taylor H-frame of 1898. Delicious bells.
Sharp 7th, isn't it? There's only a semitone between 7 and 8 of ten.
