Dear Laura,

This sounds an interesting project...

There are any number of 1750s ringing rooms
in the U.K. that you could model but...

I am a bit suspicious of invented history and
surely the first thing you can do is to attempt
to find out how *your* ringing room looked in
former times.

She has a point there.  Can't you find an
earthenware jug?
