St. Mary Abbots, Kensington were augmented to ten in 1879. Warners added a treble and tenor to the Janaway eight, recast the old 6th, and two trebles in eight.

Subject: [Bell Historians] Warners retuning during augmentations

Is anyone aware of any examples of a John Warner
augmentation by topping and tailing, or just adding a tenor,
where they tuned the n-2 of the original ring down a
semitone rather than recasting it?

(For example, the bells in a major six in G would have notes
G A B C D E.  Topping and tailing to make an eight would add
Fs at both ends, but the 4 of the original six needs moving
from B to Bb.  In my experience this was normally done by
casting a new bell.)
