[Pilton retuned at Whitechapel, but it was more or less true-harmonic
already. Martock a much earlier bell, old-style and not retuned since. CD]

[Can't agree. It too is true-harmonic more or less and sounded OK - if not
perfect - when I went there. Indeed the back three bells are all pretty
good and not quite spoilt by the Mears 1861 treble and 2nd. CD]
