Last Sunday I went to look at a single bell at Altrincham (Cheshire) St George, to advise on a 'broken rope'. The bell is 26.25" dia and had 6 canons, of which one is broken off. The only inscription is:
BOWEN FOUNDERS LONDON 1858
David Struckett's Dictionary list says he was casting in Clerkenwell between 1846 and 1890. A quick glance through GAD's NBR shows 2 bells in the Diocese of London.
Has there been any more been published on the foundry, please?
