Bells - I bet there will be a noticable difference in the sound between 
the river installation and the Garlickhythe one.<<
    We were wondering about this at Old North, as we passed around the 
RW with the artist's vision of the barge.  It looks like the ringers 
*and* the bells will literally be in a glass box - what on earth will it 
sound like to the ringers?  Any guesses?
