>From John Greenhoughs Manchester Bells:





[w] 19 [W] 90 / WHITECHAPEL (c. 16)

Hung dead with an internal electric hammer in a bellcote. Before the rebuild
of 1991, this church had eight tubular bells in

a central steeple; see also OLD TRAFFORD St John. 04/12/99




Someones got a big imagination!
