The bell from St.Silas Blackburn - by Taylor 1897 - was transferred to St.E=
rth, Cornwall, as the second of four in 1983-6. Taylore returned it in 198=
3, but owing to other problems with the church and tower the bells were not=
installed until 1896. It is now the fourth of six.

As supplied to Blackburn in 1897, it weighed 4-3-26 (28.5" diameter)
