If Chris and I are thinking of the same ones, they were of riveted
plate steel and of a fairly similar shape to their current cast-iron
Taylors also hung some bells on a variation of their standard iron
headstock. The picutre of Brockworth treble, in Church Bells of
Gloucestershire (page 169),has always amazed me. Quite why the bell
bolts don't bend when it's rung, I don't know!
