Or could just as truly answer YES. Inadequate interface between tower
and steel, just difference of detail.
40 years ago a flint rubble tower probably would have been grout
stabilised AND concrete ring beamed.

There is a newish Hertfordshire 6 where the hanger advised 4 RSJ's. In
the event he was only allowed to cut 4 girder holes in the tower, hence
2 RSJ's  and these not in the best possible location, all in the
interest of not disturbing the early structure. In this case no

It is adequate and the bells go very well, BUT it is not as stable as it
could have been and it fails more damage and expense will be involved,
and far more disturbance of ancient fabric than the original plan would
have caused.

"No, that was more to do with the stability of the flint construction 
of the tower. The concrete stuck to the beam ends just fine, just not 
the tower! Further concreting has been done but apparently as it was 
poured in at the top it ran down and out of the bottom.
