I haven't done any of these.  Westminster bells should be easy enough to
take, running across Parliament Square on the hour (but the quarters might
be more interesting).

Anybody else taken the pitches at Aldbourne?  I find I am in trouble with
figures for the Warner 1915 5th which, in fairness, does have some very
strange partial tones indeed.
