*Links:

The Swan Bells Website barely mentions this instrument, a recent addition to the museum associated with the change-ringing bells which are the reason for the structure's existence.

A set of six photos of the Swan Bell Tower doesn't show where these bells are located - presumably indoors.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of its maker.
