Indeed, but both Bradford on Avon and Pilton tenors have been
recently retuned

And the result at BoA, according to Christopher Dalton, is 'magic'. Other
comments have included 'what a lovely, lovely bell'.

The catholic church just along the road from Holy Trinity has a 1624 bell
(ex Dorchester All Saints) by John Dawton of Salisbury as a clock bell. I
had quite a job convincing a visitor to the town that the tenor at HT (which
sounds the hour) was by far the younger bell (1882). Her view was that
because it sounded better, it must be older! In all fairness the Dawton
bell does not have the hammers properly adjusted.
