Mr Grimmett has quite clearly explained how the photo came into his being and I do believe that he shared it with the group for interested persons to see.

If you were correct Richard (Offen), then I would remind you that your former employer,Whitechapel, did not do a very proffesional thing over Cornhill, when the contract was awarded to Taylors: For Whitechapel to qoute to recast but then object to Taylors doing the work was just not on. You can't qoute to do a recast and then when the contract is awarded to somebody else, try and put a block on the job in a Consistory Court by implying that the bells didn't need recasting and that only minimum tuning was done by Whitechapel.
