"Why do we assume that Cyril Johnston copied a Taylor bell? He was a
pretty clever chap by all accounts."
It is not just the bell it is the whole installation - later they did go
their own way with many designs but the example at Kirkby Malzeard is so

"...Whitechapel in the early 20s (they took their old style guage which
produced bells closest to a Simpson bell and adapted it)?"
And never got any closer!
