I seem to remember that Andrew reported a double "wishbone" on the Great Bell, Victoria, of Leeds Town Hall (likewise also a wheel with two parallel grooves). There are, or were, wishbone stays of metal on the five bells at Weston Longville, Norfolk, by no means as lethal as they sopund as the extreme "working" end was a wooden "wick" which would break fairly readily if bumped. By Soames, of Marsham, I believe, c1900.

  Matthew's description of a wishbone arrangement with the tops of the stays almost meeting is an accurate description of the installation at Millbrook.
