I thought you had one of the bell in the foundry? It is shown with what I assume to be the Beverley headstock, though the later bell is larger. The headstock at Downside is not the same as that shown on the foundry snap.

I gave Matthew a print some years ago. I might still a spare that i can let you have.

    T he foundry one & the one outside Beverley would be useful as I'm writing up CBER.


    Several - what sort of angle? It's quite hard to photograph it in the tower. I have some old ones of it in the foundry (Thanks to NOS), outside Beverley Minster and also outside Downside. I have seen anothe of it being unlodaed at Chilcompton Station in 1903, before being hauld over the fields using horses and a large cart!
