Ah, I must have misunderstood PRLH, must have been a Murphy frame!

Are you sure? Dukes claims they were Gillett & Bland (2 bells - the tenor &
treble of 8).
Thanks for this info George, but I was wondering if there were any rings
still in existance. I am sure somebody told me about a Murphy ring somewhere
near Liverpool some years ago.
