Dear Carl

Re Carl's interesting posting:

MADRAS, St George's Cathedral. Sounded from an Ellacombe chiming manual; all 8 are Mears & Stainbank, 1871; a diatonic 8 with the bass bell 48", 20cwt 1qr 27lbin E, and of these I have some prints. The bells were presented by Mr G. Banbury, the chiming apparatus by Revd T Foulkes. The bells are hung 'dead' in two tiers and have never been hung to swing.  There are also three clock bells by Thomas Mears II 1827/8; hour strike and ding-dong quarters, dimensions not known to me. Presented with the clock to the Cathedral (built 1816) in 1828.
