And it hasn't had further attention since.
> The other two for which there were faculties were
> Charminster, 1932-1933, to weld two cracks in tenor bell and rehang it; and
> Collingbourne Ducis, 1935: to weld, quarter-turn and re-hang a bell.
Both these bells were recast (sorry, 'new cast', or 'replaced') not too long
afterwards so Barimar's efforts were unsuccessful in the long term.
