The chime might be of use to a church - RC as well as Anglican - which
doesn't have a tower suitable for full size bells.  I have over the years
come across several towers where there is active interest in chiming sets of
tubular and/or hemispherical bells, but there doesn't seem to be any
co-ordinating body for them.

  The following email was sent to the CCCBR (Robin Shipp) who thought that
it would be of interest to members of this list.  It is from Geoff Rhodes.


  I have just visited the above church where we have just been commissioned
to carry out a reordering project.  This is a very small, neglected late
1880s church in the Nottinghamshire coalfield.

  They have a small single tolling bell which was installed in 1994 to
replace a set of tubular bells that were fitted on the roof in 1902 to
commemorate the coronation of Edward VII and paid for by public
subscription.  These bells have been brought inside and are currently stored
on the church balcony - which is not easily accessible due to poor
structural condition of the balcony.

  I am particularly interested in whether there are any specific groups who
are interested in church tubular bells - the church council would be looking
for disposal but if there is a way that they can be displayed we would be
interested in talking to someone about how this could be incorporated into
the project.
