Sorry about the Zed. I thought Americans called it Zee!

You are probably correct in your surmising, but without examination it is d=
ifficult to be 100% sure as to exactly what happened. John Bailey has some =
very specific instructions for his next visit. What GAD did not put on his=
site was the photograph of the remains of the clavier, which is about as r=
esidual as everything else.

The top bell is nothing to do with the chime, in fact it pre-dates it. It i=
s by Gillett & Bland 1877 and was supplied to the Sultan of Zanzibar who in=
turn gave it to the Cathedral. The early Gillett pages are being explored =
for details. But it only sounds with the clock.
