Louie Wilkinson plays the Eloise Chimes in Hulley Tower. 1946. 

Musicians played the chimes with wooden handles, each attached to a bell by a system of pulleys, wires and leather straps. The playing platform was located on the tower's second level, open to the air and reached by a narrow stone staircase. A series of iron ladders lead to the bells, that was also open to the air.
