*Links:

The Cathedral Website has a photo of the building.

The Website of the cathedral ringers has photos of the building and the bells, but doesn't mention the "carillon mechanism".  The north tower (called the Jasper Tower) is pictured on the History page.

The Wikipedia article on the cathedral has a photo which shows more of the spired south tower (which does not contain bells) than of the pinnacles-and-parapet north tower (which does).

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Whitechapel bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
