Anything to do with Major Hesse of Wrington, Somerset (among other places I 
think) - he was instrumental in the augmentation at Wrington and bell related 
work at other places (Sherborne Abbey & Rowberrow spring to mind). He also 
developed a clapper design for very small model bells which clappered on the 
correct side - two exist in the ringing chambers at Wrington and South Petherton.
