The "sex in Nothumberland" (sic) sounds interesting!

Presumably it means Corbridge; and if so, they are still there.

I have been asked by Frank Lewis (a ringer in Kent) to consult the Bell
Historians on his home tower, Brasted (Kent). They were cast in 1881 by
Gillett, Bland & Co. Frank is asking whether this is the only complete
Gillett, Bland & Co ring left? He has asked r-c the question before and
someone mentioned other possibly contenders: Crawley (thought no longer to
be intact) and a sex in Northumberland.

As it happens I was looking at the old Gillett, Bland & Co. notebook this
lunchtime, but was looking to answer a different question so can't be sure,
but it does look likely.

The bells at Brasted are shortly to be restored and augmented (still in
their anticlockwise frame), so even if this status is conferred, it won't
last long.
