I bow to the distinction, but never say never, you know how varied towers are in shape and load capability, better than me.

    parallel pits do not fit the maximum bells in 
    the minimum space, H frames or the L&G set up 
    with isolated bearing towers on a massive 
    grillage do that.

  You must have more experience of designing frames than me! :-)

  Design of framesides is one thing - layout is another. The Chawton frame has lowside parallel pits with bells 1&6, 2&5, 3&4 mouth to mouth. They have gallows ends to allow the bells to swing as close to the wall as possible. The bells wouldn't fit in any other layout - I tried very hard to get bells swinging in 2 directions, but failed to to get a workable layout.
