[The founder was not one of the Purdues but Robert Austen I. The 4th is a
Thomas Purdue and treble a 16th c. bell from the Closworth stable, however.

Always (well, usually!) glad to give help but it is kind of nice to know the
purpose, tho' in this case I think I can guess it.

Answers to recent questions about Pitstone, Bucks. are all on record at The
Churches Conservation Trust. Some of the minor repairs were carried out by
a local farmer/engineer/conservator called Jeff Hawkins, sadly no longer
with us. C D ]
