Whilst we're on the subject of Alfred Bowell (one of my bell founding 
and bell hanging heros!), I'd be very interested to know from Andrew 
Higson how the Bowell bells at Frindsbury (Kent) tuned up the other 

Bowell's splendid, heavy six at Smarden, cast at about the same time, 
are pretty well a true harmonic ring (there is an excellent old 
photograph of Smarden tenor on Bowell's tuning machine on the Smarden 
page of Love's Guide to the Bells of Kent) and I was wondering if the 
seven at Frinsbury were the same?
