In case you haven't guess, George is very excited by seeing this - 2
trips to the foundry and cheesy grins so far! It has completely
overshadowed the rather nice tenor from Hewelsfield that arrived the
other day too.

The important dated bell from here has arrived at Taylors for
restoration, the church having been burnt in 2006.
It is dated 1462, not 1465 as reported by Walters in CBE etc. The full
[+] ihc [stop] thomas [stop] york [stop] abbas [stop] de [stop] holm
[stop] cV [stop] dominio [stop] anno dni [stop] millo [diamond stop]
cccco [diamond stop] lxiio
The o's at the end of millo , cccco & lxiio are superscript.
The diameter is 20.93" & it weighs 1.3.8. The canons have long been
removed. The stop and lettering seem to be unique.
The bell is very important as there are so few dated bells between 1450
& 1500 (this bell, Salhouse, Grimley & Durham castle are the only ones
to survive, a few, now recast are known).
Photographs should be posted on the photos section soon.
