I have accumulated recordings of nearly 400 bells by Thomas Osborn and
William Dobson, quite a few of them on a visit to North Norfolk,
Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire in June. I am now working on an
investigation into their partial frequencies. For a small number of peals, I
have not been able to find out whether the bells have been tuned in modern
times. The peals are as follows:

Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire

Hilgay, Norfolk

Marsham, Norfolk

Northwold, Norfolk

Soham, Cambridgeshire.


If anyone knows of any evidence of them being tuned, what date and who by,
that would be very helpful.


Many thanks,


Bill H
