Alan assured us last Sunday that he was talking about the old carillon:


“Perhaps I should have said the carillon of c1928.




So presumably his measurements were taken prior to the 1950s and 2000s remodeling of the instrument.

I am now quite confused! Are we talking about the new or old Riverside 
bells? I was told that the front end bells of the Whitechapel 
replacements are somewhat bigger than the originals, bin both diameter 
and thickness. I also thought that carillon bells were numbered the 
other way round from ringing bells - i.e. the biggest being no 1.

Best wishes,

That would only give a soundbow thickness of  9/16", the small carillon 
bells I have seen are very thick, well over 1" thick

Would 5 7/8" be the strike diameter at the thickest part of the sound 
bow? would your informant be able to check this?

That's precisely what I'm wanting to know. G&J says diameter is 5 7/8 
inches, actual outside measurement, as measured by my informant - 7 
inches. The former measurement being the inside.

Hoe very odd, Hoe on earth can you sensibly determine an inside diameter 
at the lip the shape being a curve?
sounds an implaudable explanation.

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?
