We have three of Philip's rope at Worcester Cathedral. The rope on the tenor
is the first I've experienced with no stretch. This makes a big difference
when handling 48 cwt bell. His experiments on splicing braided rope to
three-strand are successful. 


Philip's work is to be encouraged. Standards elsewhere have slipped, and
long seasonally affected waiting lists hardly score well as good customer

Matthew is not the only one.....

I have quite a number of my own ropes spread across the country, plus many
other repairs which I have also undertaken in the last few years.

Please contact me for details.
