I have not rung on either of these rings. A question comes to mind.  
What did Grimethorpe rings sound like in comparision to other rings 
produced at the same time?

Am I correct in assuming that they had some musical deficiencies, based 
solely on the fact that rings to this design were never that common?  
If this is the case, is it really fair to ask a Parish to retain 
something that could be made better at the same time as a general 
restoration? It is a real quandary - retention of something historical 
that might not be the best at the expense of someone else? Should not 
the expense be borne elsewhere?

Just a thought!
