time this historic location in the history of the exercise had a 
decent number of proper bells in it once more? If the College Youths 
and Cumberlands worked together, perhaps London could get its first 
sixteen - after all, London has to be the only place in the world 
that should comfortably be able to support sixteen bell ringing but 
which doesn't have a sixteen bell tower. Cutting the extra rope 
holes in the concrete floor might be a pain in the bum, but I take it 
that the tower is a reasonable size (especially by London standards!) 
and that fitting them in shouldn't be too problematic.

I ring at a sixteen bell tower on an almost daily basis, but must 
admit that I'm still not convinced about the overall musicality of 
sixteen. What about a decent twelve instead?!
