>Has anyone got the outline details fo the bells at Stawley, Somerset?
Back three medieval Exeter foundry. Two trebles Taylor's 1870s. Canons off
front two, retained on back three. Frame & fittings by Arthur Fiddler -
fabricated steel canon retaining stocks on back two, RSJ stocks on trebles.
Lowside frame - if I remember rightly it's a 6-bell frame.
The bells are tuned in the Lydian mode (i.e. 1-5 of 8) - don't know why
Taylor's did this.
So far as I'm aware the bells were not weighed when Arthur Fiddler rehung
them - tenor approx. 8 cwt.
