>G R Hayward said on anopther list:
>"Weren't some of the very late G&J jobs cast and tuned at Taylors
>under the G&J name?"
Not quite. Some of the very last G&J bells were cast at Taylor's (to G&J
designs, using G&J strickles and lettering), but the castings were then sent
to G&J who tuned and fitted them.
>If so could the augmentation at watford be one of these?
No - far too early. The bells cast at Taylor's were produced in 1955.
There was an informative article by Andrew Higson on the front page of the
RW within the last year or so giving the background to the situation and a
list of the bells concerned.
