Bolton back 8 are by Taylor's 1885. Not sure whether they were tuned
when transferred but I expect so.
> St Peter,Bolton has a twelve with a tenor of 19-2-0 and a treble of
> two and three quarter cwt-which I personally consider to be light for
> a twelve of this weight.
> The back eight are from The Saviour,Deane Road,Bolton(I do not have
> records of the founder),but the treble,2nd,#2nd,3rd and fourth were
> cast by Taylors in 1974 from metal of the front seven of the previous
> ring of eight(tenor retained dead for chiming).
> Blackburn cathederal also has relatively light trebles,but they are a
> fine ring(and in recent years less odd struck due to work by James
> Hustler and others).
> There was talk of making them a twelve a few years ago,but I think
> this would have been a mistake as the present trebles are a little
> indistinct at times as a ten
