I would disagree with the inscription being a crude reproduction of the previous bell. I wonder if theres an Archivist on site?

In which case it is too early for Bradwell and may be a local attempt.

Here are some close up pictures, clearly showing the inscriptions `1678’ and ‘Gloria’. 

The bell recorded on p.35 of the GAD book is a different bell - that's the clock bell hung in a turret above the Stable Block.


The bell I’m referring to is hung in the turret above the South Tower of the House - it is inscribed SOLI DEO GLORIA  (Glory to God alone) 1678.

With the dome shape top etc, it is almost certainly by Joseph Bradwell of Richmond.

I know of 6 bells by him including the Arthengarthdale 3, and John Eisel noted the treble at Kirkby Fleetham (RW 18/7/1997, p.724) & see RW 27/6/1997, p.651 which details of him found by Dot Salmon are to be noted.

So another rather interesting find, but photos or rubbings would be superb.
