GALLERY – REGAL, MARBLE ARCH
Regal,
Marble Arch
The Carillon in its frame at the Croydon workshop of bellfounders Gillett & Johnston. Its makers patented the power plant and special mechanisms that were necessary to make it playable from the organ - perhaps in the hope that more organ builders would install Carillons in their instruments. They didn't, and "the Regal chimes" was the only true Carillon to be installed in an organ in the United Kingdom ("Carillon" stops found on other organs are metal bars or chimes, not real bells). The heaviest bell weighed 61/2 CWT and the total weight was approximately 21/2 tons - which made this peal one of the smallest in the world, in terms of weight relative to the number of bells.
