Inscription reproduced and added to on new treble of 12 at Towcester
The inscription also adapted and used on a new "Henchman" bell, given by Dr=
David Henchman of Goulborne NSW and incorpoated in the new ring of 8 in Ca=
There are now 3 Henchman bells!
Original inscription read:
Ring boyes and keep awake
For Mr William Henchmans sake.
The present Towcester treble has the additional:
We rang sir and kept awake
And into twelve the bells did make.
