In one of the Dorset books mention is made of a 1770s Pack and Chapman bell
which is of very good tone. Knaresborough are from 1774 althought the two
trebles have been recast, St Mary's Shrewbury are cited as a good example,
Coventry were of this era and I have found the treble at Farnham (Yorks)
1774 to be almost modern toned. Any other examples from this era and any
tonal analysis - apart from the recent recreation of Coventry?


PS The Dorset reference was from a place with two single bells in different
buildings the other one about 30 years later and of poor tone!
