This is what i Said,
If Moseley Bells are Scrapped we will loose a piece of industrial heritage,
I know the bells sound like buckets, but that is there appeal & charm to hear how bad they are.
It is like watching a terrible TV programme, you may hate the film but you still watch it.
If These bells are Scrapped & not saved by for example The Black Country Museum,
We will loose the Historic Eight Steel Bells cast at the Shipyard of Naylor Vickers & Co.
The only other are the set of eight steel bells at Lancaster U.S.A. hung dead except the tenor, 
They are rung by a chimestand keyboard, Cast by Naylor Vickers & Co in 1860, 
with a Flat 7th cast by Lester & Pack in 1768, The Tenor is Hung for Ringing,
Is there a preservation order on the bells?
like in a listed building?

I think what Kevin meant to say was that Lancaster will be the only octave capable of being sounded as things stand, depending what happens to Moseley.

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?
