Stolen goods?

An interesting reply from Beaumont School:

Dear Peter,

Many apologies for the delay in replying. Whilst the bell could originate from this School (founded 1888) my guess is that it is more likely to have come from Beaumont College, our one-time senior School, closed in the 60s and now a Hayley Conference Centre. Having said that I recall mention that we were a bell short at one stage (as you can tell I am no expert at this) and, indeed, we took delivery of a new one last year (see photo). I will try and do some more research on this and come back to you.

So was there a missing bell? Is it mine?

To be continued........
