Great Bede’s New Headstock!

It is a few years since the monks at Downside Abbey in Somerset ordered a new cast iron headstock to rehang their 5 ton Taylor Great Bede. Progress on the project has been hampered since the order was placed, not least by the Order relinquishing Downside to set up in a new location. The new headstock has been cast, and we await further instructions about progressing the job to a successful conclusion.
