For some reason I am unable to view the photo originally sent to this list. 
However members might be interested to know that I took part in an attempt 
for a peal of Little Bob Major on the old eight at Southwell.   They were 
rung from a gallery with a wire mesh grill and the bellropes came down so 
close to the grill that it was easy to catch ones knuckles on it.    I rang 
the treble and after well over three hours two ringers fluffed a dodge and 
the conductor (Bert Rooke) stood it up.   He insisted on  an extremely high 
standard of striking!

There is a photo on the Bellringing Autobiography section of my website 

John R Ketteringham MBE PhD from Lincoln in Lovely Lincolnshire

It is the same picture, so it is definitely Southwell. I wonder why the 
Heritage Images website clamis it as "Interior of a church bell tower, 
Oxfordshire, c1860-c1922."
