The only St John's I can think of is St John, Wilton Road - see my earlier list. I think that was St John the Evangelist.

  Sorry David, it wasn't St James it was St John the Baptist Pimlico Road. Any information?

  Do you have any information on St James Pimlico Road? I think this was built as an overflow church for St Barnabas.

  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.

    From G&J bell records Volume 10 p102:

    Pimlico [no exact place given] No. 4828; 1 bell; 20" dia; 1-2-20 in A 870hz. October 26, 1933.

    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.
