Have not rung at Wrexham, (even though I lived not much more that 20
miles from the place for 15 years!), but they are the same vintage as
most of the back twelve at Swan Bells. Mainly dating from 1725,
this Rudhall ring (tuned by Whitechapel), as long as you are not
after true-harmonic perfection (not always all that it is cracked up
to be!), produce a grand and magnificent sound, which is much loved
by all of us here in Perth.
As we've said before Chris, it's all subjective!
