These two bells adorn the porch of my house. The mechanical fire alarm bell makes an unbelievable racket. At least it did when I tested it before installation. It's not the thing to ring for fun in a tranquil New Forest village. It's neighbour was used at a local depot to ring at the end of shifts. A heavy beast similar to those used on old fire engines. And I have two of those elsewhere outside my house. The old fire alarm was obtained from a company getting rid of old props for film making. We seek them everywhere.
