Fred Sharpe (The Church Bells of Oxfordshire, p.333) gives:

Chapel: 2 Bells in roof space, 34" and 36" by Warner 1874. Hung for 

Dining Hall entrance: 1 bell 1752 Rudhall 1752. Where did it come from?

Clock Tower: 3 Hemispherical bells, 25 3/4"; 30 1/2"; 36" Mears & 
Stainbank 1873

Interesting that they purchased the chapel bells and the clock bells 
about the same time from two different founders.

Subject: [Bell Historians] Keble College, Oxford - 8 bells

Chris Pickford has pointed me in the direction of an enquiry from Keble 
College, Oxford to Gillett & Bland, for a set of 8 bells (which G&B in 
turn contacted John Taylor about) in 1872. Taylors never actually 
(directly) supplied the bells, but were bells supplied anyway? I can’t 
find any reference to a chime of 8 existing at Keble, but does that mean 
that there wasn’t one in the past? Does anyone know?

Many thanks,
