To the left there seems to be the bracing for a second tier of bells. The later sequences show two bells hung above which look like products of the Whitechapel bell foundry. A ten made into twelve?
You could well be right.
It seems that British Pathe "news reels" seemed to contain a fair amount of bells for the period of time they were run.
Don't know it it has been archived or not, but British Pathe did a short item on one of the mini rings that was in existance in Balscote.
I haven't seen the footage, but have seen reference to it a long time ago. Charlie Jarvis is interviewed and there is footage of the ring, I understand, though I don't know it it was his ring of handbells, a ring of of his collection of bells, or if it was the G&J/Whitechapel ring.
