*Links:

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town reports that the old town hall in the center of town has been replaced by a new one on the outskirts; the new one has no place for bells, and the old one has been tentatively located, though the apparent number of bells there is only about 15.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
