Does anyone know what my chances are of getting a DAC to agree to the
romoval of canons from the front two of a 1723 Rudhall three that are
Three new Trebles will be cast and two new Tenors giving a ring of
eight with the three Rudhall bells as 4,5,6 of eight.
>From my own personal engineering viewpoint, two middle bells out of an
eight fitted with canon retaining stocks and the other six with normal
stocks is not the most practical option.
There is no ornamentation on the canons and I see little point in
keeping them, especially as there are loads of Rudhall bells in
If all three existing bells retained canons then I would be looking at
getting the new bells cast with canons so we had eight with canons and
canon retaining stocks.
Any advice appreciated- we need to get the faculty application in very
soon as we cannot place an order for work without a faculty.
