bells by John Wallis. They have no canons (probably removed in 1891), one
was skirted in 1882, the other was tuned (minimally)in 1998. Both sound
beautiful. Should these be listed?

I would certainly hope that your L&J tenor gets listed, along with our 29cwt
L&J tenor at St Thomas, Bristol which I think is a superb bell.
