    I have been fascinated by the different chime sequence of the 5 bells at Merton College. From all I can read the clock, which must be part of it has been there a long time, way before Big Ben in London. I was wondering if one of our members who lives in that area might possibly be able to make a video of the mechanism during the hour chime, so you can see it as well as hear the bells? I'm over in US with no real way to get there.
    If anyone is familiar with this turret clock, let me know. It chimes a very different tune than the traditional "Big Ben" that is in all floor clocks.

    Thank you for any interest
