I received a message from the firm, via the contact form on my website, that was working on the castle about a bell they had in the gatehouse and passed it on to Chris Pickford and also this list.  Chris, with other experts, such as George Dawson, recognised the importance of this bell and, as a result of their work, the bell was conserved by Taylors of Loughborough in 2021.

This was covered in an article in The Ringing World of January 15th 2021, pp28/9.
