The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town mentions that the town hall is a former estate, but it is not clear where on the estate these bells might be located.

A tour page (in English) gives the history of the building, and some photos, but none of them show any bells.

The town Website has no information about the bells.

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