It remains to be seen if reducing the tenor by about half a ton makes any
difference to the amount of tower movement at Cornhill.


It will be a sad day when the only rings of twelve we have are all
true-harmonic (fairly unlikely I know, but we are going in that direction),
we shall have lost an important link with the history of change ringing
...thank goodness the Swan Bells aren't going anywhere!




I think that at Cornhill there's also issues about the suitability of

the current ring for the tower. They're somewhat crammed-in on two

tiers, and if memory serves I think the tower rocked about somewhat. But

I see Rod's point about "interesting" and "different" twelves being

replaced with identikit modern rings.

Any chance of coming back to ideas on Cornhill?
