What I find more interesting with the bells cast in Victoria is the 
high-tech manner of manufacture and mass replication of tuned bells 
using CNC lathes etc ...applied to British bell founding, I fear it 
would put Messrs Higson and Taylor out of a job pretty quickly, 
which, in my opinion, would be a very bad thing!   

Thank goodness for individuality!
