Indeed it does - the inscription on the waist is incised. Can't remember 
what it says but I have details at home - it's in Latin, from memory. None 
of the other bells have anything incised. The inscriptions on the front 8 
plus flat 6th are in gothic lettering, and the back four have South 
Somercotes lettering. The extra treble, added in 1978/9, has Taylor's usual 
Roman script. I'd be interested to see the photo - don't think I've come 
across this one. Could you email it to me?
