How much are we talking?  I can see the advantage of a 'spare set' when our tower is out of action for big repairs next year.

  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.
