 And of course it is a very strange system in that A would be used to describe bells within an interval of one semitone whereas A# describes half a semitone and Bb likewise.
The reason people keep asking and challenging is that it so clearly not thought through!

This policy makes sense for single bells, but I agree with 
Richard that it's daft for rings.  It's not being applied 
properly, anyway.  Why aren't York Minister, Exeter 
Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral listed as A#?  Is it 
perhaps because they wouldn't put up with this nonsense?
