Sylvia Townsend Warner in Lavenham Belfry - 5 December, 1927
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 5:
Then the belfry itself, the bells balanced on large beams, with great wheels to pull them round. the man rang the B ♭bell for us. It wheeled over abruptly, and the noise clanged, swelled and grew outward on the air, trembled and then settled on the third.
