> "[a Fellow] has responded to the article on retuning church bells
by saying that the registration scheme for ancient bells should be
supported because ‘the money-saving tendency is for parishes to
melt down an old bell and use the metal to cast a new one when a ring
is being modernised, enlarged, or replaced. A great many early bells
have been lost in this way’. Retuning church bells, he adds,is
not too great a problem if historical methods are used."
Who is this "expert"?
