Cawston tenor is 43", no more than 15-cwt; the recast 6th is 9-3-7. The t=
wo trebles which hang side by side in the well-hole in the centre of the fr=
ame are 26" 3-3-24 and 28" 4-3-11, so up to ringing sizes. The new bells =
are very good and bright, but the old five are a dreary lot, so there's not=
much music. What is amazing is the huge 15th-century frame, apparently=
of one built with the glorious tower and church, plenty of room to hang t=
he bells well below it. =

Are the Taylor bells at Cawston cast to chiming weights? When Taylor's
added three chiming trebles to the ring of 3 at Wheldrake, Yorks, in
1920 they supplied chiming-scale bells.
