It's interesting to note the original method of chiming the bell. At each
side of the bell either side of the headstock are 4 chutes. The right hand
one on this side of the bell still has its pedal, whereas the left hand one
is missing. I assume that 4 beefy blokes would jump up and down on them to
get the bell swinging.

Are there any examples of this method of chiming in the UK?

No topless 'belle' then? Typical school firewall -let's pupils on all
sorts of rubbish but doesnt allow something like this!
