[What really will be fun will be the amount of tower-sway if the bells are
augmented in line with local proposals. But Ludlow has had no shortage of
advice, including some good, and there is hope that sense will be seen, even
if this means that the two G & J bells ex-Kidderminster bells need to move
on to another tower. I don't think Ludlow isn't going to be allowed to
flout the faculty jurisdiction next time round. C D (stirring, as usual)]
