Kevin Jones:

This is a shame because these are the only remaining 8 steel bells in the world hung for ringing that were 
cast by Vickers except for the eight steel bells at Lancaster, The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity 
in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. that are Chimestand Chimed.



Not so. Naylor, Vickers & Co / Vickers, Sons & Co cast rings of eight for


Sheffield, S Marie (transferred to Moseley, replaced by Mears 8 1874)

Randwick, Sydney, Australia (replaced by Taylor 8 2000)

Hurst, Lancs (Scrapped c1960)

Hastings S Clement (Replaced by Taylor 8 1965)

Blackpool, Sacred Heart (Replaced by Mears 8)

Edinburgh, S Giles (Chime, scrapped) 



So actually Kevin is right, this is the last remaining steel eight?
