A bit of history. First peal at this tower in 1978 (after Fred Colley had rehung the trbele and overhauled the fittings), the band included P. Border 1, C Pickford 2, ... not much room for anyone else in that tiny ringing room (with a huge fixed ladder in the middle). PB was sure George Fearn's band had rung peals there, but the 1978 one was the first peal recorded by Felstead

More of a problem stopping the clappers going over, as I recall - bang the stay too hard and you're done. Double-clappering is probably preferable to not striking, so beware alterations that increase the risk of a clapper going over.  

Interesting experience ahead - good luck (won't go so far as to say "enjoy"!!!).

  Although not strictly Bell History, the list seems the best place to 
  pose this question:

  I've got a certain 3cwt Warner 8 for a peal on Saturday and wish to 
  cure the treble of double clappering at backstroke. Are the any simple 
  tricks to remedy this e.g. putting a weight on the clapper?
