The bell in the attached picture is on a windowsill in the Spread Eagle 
pun near Wragby, Yorkshire. It is marked Wm. Gammon 1817 in somewhat 
uneven lettering. No other marks are visible. I wonder if it was made by 
a foundry not used to making bells; I have never heard the name before. 
The bell is approx 15 inches across the rim. The landlady did not know 
the bells history but as the pub is very close to Nostell Priory she 
thought it might have come from Wragby Church, which is in teh grounds. 
I thought that extremely unlikely (we were having lunch before ringing 
there) but wondered if it might have come from a stable block or 
similar. Is the maker known?
