From: "Paul Marshall" <paul&jean at p...>
> The 6 at Quatt, near Bridgnorth, Shropshire, is a complete Rudhall ring
> dated 1700 - in more or less original condition too! All retain their
> canons except the 3rd, which is hung in an early cast-iron headstock
> (Barwell I think - or at least a Birmingham company (but definitely not
> Carrs)). They are hung in a frame which is said to pre-date the bells.
> It has been patched up quite a bit though.
