Just a few observations on the recent exchanges on RSJ stocks.

1. Cold Ashby was definitely a Bowell job (not Barwell)

2. I don't know of any RSJ stocks by Barwell

3. Bremhill is/was a Webb and Bennett job, as has been pointed out, and I thought that the bells at Kington St Michael were rehung by Arthur Fidler in about 1972 (not by Bond)

4. Bowell's very serviceable RSJ stocks are invariably I section, with plate gudgeons bolted to the underside. 

5. Bond's girder stocks, on the other hand, are H section with the gudgeons fixed in the underside of the channel

Hope this helps
