As always, your information is fascinating David.


I think the bell at St Peter Eaton Square wasn't damaged in the fire. The
bell is certainly used.


Do you have any information on St Mary Vincent Square? Long since
demolished? And Christ Church Victoria Street?

Quite possibly the G&J bell which Alan quotes is that at St Mary, Bourne
Street, which was founded as a daughter church of St Barnabas. It was
formerly known as Graham Street and is sometimes quoted as Westminster
rather than Pimlico.  


I've always quoted the Pimlico towers as 

S Barnabas (10) See Lovesguide

S Gabriel, Warwick Square (8) ditto  

S Saviour, St Geotrge's Square (8+2) ditto

S Michael, Chester Square (3, hung dead) Mears 1846, 2nd recast by JT 1933

S Mary, Bourne Street (see above)

S James the Less, Thorndike Street (Garden Street) (1, Warner,  reputedly in
a frame for more: any reliable data, anyone?)

S Peter, Eaton Square (There was a 15-cwt G&J bell, was it replaced after
the fire?)

All Saints, Ennisbmore Gardens (1)

All Saints, Grosvenor Road (dem, the M&S bell now the 5th at Aldenham)

Holy Trinity, Bessborough Gardens (bombed, dem, was 1, JT, in a frame for 6)

S John, Wilton Road (bombed, dem, were 8, Warner, 9-3-17)

S Philip, Buckingham Palace Road (1) ? dem

I believe S Paul, Wilton Place, Knightsbridge, a great heavy u/r 3, see
Lovesguide, is sometimes claimed as Pimlico, and no doubt there are others.


Hope you all had a great Christmas - best wishes to all on the list for a
happy new year.

The above may be of interest.

On a recent visit to London I took the opportunity to walk to Pimlico. 
The church has obviously had a vast amount of money spent on it and is 
now shining white with cleaned and replaced stone. The slate louvres 
also look brand new. Unfortunately the exterior gate was locked and I 
was unable to gain access to the interior or the vicarage. The school 
was open but I deemed it to be intrusive to try to gain access to the 
church by trying to attract attention there. I am told that the church 
interior is amongst the most ornate in London.
I remember Alan Taylor indicating that there might be some bell 
activity there once the restoration of the church was completed. If 
this is the case, has any bell related work been considered?
Judging by the proximity of the neighbouring commercial and domestic 
buildings a very efficient sound control system would be mandatory.
The exterior of the adjacent church buildings has not benefitted from 
any contemporary restoration.
