I think Smith's (the clockmakers) sell electronic devices which simulate the 
sound of bells. I've seen them in a catalogue. From the description, they 
sound really naff, I must say.

In Northallerton there is a clock projecting from the front of a shopping 
precinct, which 'sounds' the Westminster quarters and hour, with the 
recodings being of a chime with an hour bell in excess of a ton. Can't 
remember what the note is - Eb or D I think, but I could be wrong. It sounds 
rather incongruous, to say the least!
