How about a complete change of subject?
I was chatting to an architect friend of mine over here in Perth the
other evening and we got on to the subject of bells and the frames
they are hung in (he is inspecting architect for one of the churches
with a ring of bells over here).
He wanted to know how old the oldest timber frame is, still
supporting a regularly use change ringing peal, and where it is? He
accepted that many frames have evolved over the centuries, but, as he
said, there must be a few left where the majority of material is from
I must admit I couldn't answer his question, but said that I knew a
group of people who could!
