Hi All, 

          Here is some info on: 


Spain, Madrid, Basilica de San Francisco el Grande, (The Royal Church), (Torre Sur, South Tower), 

8, 7-0-12 in Ab, - Unringable, There is no floor under the bells, There is a spiral staircase in the centre of

the ringing chamber with a 3 feet high steel railing.

The second, fourth & sixth have no wheels. (Torre Norte, North Tower)

11, 11-1-2 in F, - Unplayable chime, All the bells were cast by John Warner & Sons in 1882. 


I don't think the installation was ever completed but with all the British ExPats living in Spain

they should be restored.
