Church Bell pulls
The bell-pulls, situated in the Vestry, for the 8-peal tubular bells. The tuning of the bells is set in the scale of C major i.e, no 'sharps or flats' and just a pure octave - C to C. This means that some musical 'licence' has to be forthcoming for many melodies that normally require sharps and flats!
