> I see that the 6th quarter bell at York Minster is now listed 
as 'clock bell'. Is there a reason for this?

Yes. I'm guilty as charged. When I updated the list for this year's 
diary (with help from several members of the list, and especially Chris 
Pickford's list of great bells on the Keltek website) my original 
description of this bell was 'Clock bell no. 6' in line with Chris' 
list. In editing the text to fit the space available, this ended up as 
you see. I'll make a note to change it for next year. '6th quarter' has 
a certain arithmetical charm about it in any case!

If there are any more errors, please let us know at the RW and we'll be 
happy to correct them.
