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!
