A few years ago my wife and I joined one of these tours. The elderly 
male guide, a ringer, informed us all that the bells were very special 
and had been made in,  and had come all the way from Whitechapel in 
England. I didn't have the heart to correct him.
We didn't contact the Boston ringers because we were on a bus tour that 
was in Boston at non ringing times. But Laura, thanks again for the 
hospitality in your home in 1986
