Information about the RH bell in the tower
[+] SERVA [K] CAMPANAM [Q] SANCTA [K] MARIA [Q] SANAM
With all letters ā€˜Sā€™ reversed, as at Dyrham. Ideally, I would like close-up photos of the 4 RHs together with the adjacent letters on either side to provide location identification, together with a close-up of the initial cross image. It would be nice to have some photos showing the distribution of the moulding wires & grooves, as you showed on your photos, as these items all help in the identification of the bell-founder or foundry, which in the case of Nettleton, is taken to be the Worcester Foundry during the period 1400 ā€“ 1420 A.D.

The Article below was found by Jamie Fairchild an ex ringer at Frampton Cotterell and passed to Gary Crisp who has given me a copy in the Cornerstone Magazine which is the journal of the SPAB (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) and is the alternate view or purports to be about the removal of  Horton's listed frame.
Many Thanks to Cornerstone Magazine and a John Lawrence for the picture.
