Thanks George for the info on profile measurement. The way I have 
started doing it is equivalent (thank goodness).

That's where I got the idea from.

I recorded Castleton a few weeks ago, but did not take measurements. 
Assessing them by eye, the trebles and tenors looked to be roughly 
the same height, but the tenors are much wider. This is confirmed by 
their tuning, the trebles are pretty standard old-style, the tenors 
are something special. I have some photos too, all to go on the 
website when I have time.
