I was too hasty but have now read all the other contributions. Dumbleton 
was by no means the first cast iron low-side frame but it was the first on a
(rather flimsy!) steel foundation. It is good to have a weight for the
mighty iron stock at Richard's Castle.

Forget what I said about numbering of stocks at Nynehead but I still think
this must have been a Doble job in 1894. Don't Mr Higson's records say?

Could somebody who knows St John's Cardiff please confirm, or otherwise,
that the frame is high-sided and - like Peterborough Cathedral - a mixture
of A and H castings?
