As it was only stored at Sittingbourne and never hung there,
shouldn't the sixth really be classified as 'ex-Croydon'?
What a shame that the two tenors at Orange couldn't have been
modern, harmonically tuned bells rather than an old Rudhall (much as
I love certain Rudhall rings!) and one by Chris Pickford's favourite
founder, Thomas Mears II!
To my mind the otherwise excellent new ring at St James', Sydney is
somewhat marred by a tired sounding Rudhall tenor trying to compete
with seven good Taylor bells. I know it's all a question of
availability and economics, but a shame none the less.
