  Surely the G & J bell doesn't exist any more. The present no.7 was cast by Whitechapel a few years ago.

    My attention has been drawn to the fact that there may be two ways of measuring a bell's diameter. Bell No.7 of the G&J Riverside Carillon, weighing only 15lbs, has been measured as 7" (no typo error)on the outside (lip to lip)but in the G&J Tuning Books it is given as 5 7/8". The measurements have been checked by my informer and shows the smaller measurement to be that of the INSIDE of the bell. What of the other bells here, I wonder?

    Is this the usual practice of Cyril or may be anyone else?
