"Thank you for this information. As I have only purchased my facsimile
copy Of Church Bells of Wiltshire recently, I have not had a chance to
read and analyze it like this."
I believe that Wiltshire, like Walters' work on Worcestershire and
Shropshire, was originally published in parts in the local archaeological
journal. I have seen an original, and from memory it was made up of
three off-prints bound together, with continuous pagination.
Yes Walters, like Lukis before him, was originally published in 'The
Wiltshire Archaeological Magazine' (WAM) between 1927 and 1929. It relied
heavily on an earlier manuscript by James Jerram which is in the Salisbury
Some of Walters' informants were not very accurate; I was told to beware of
anything contributed by Mr Smith.
