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!
