The details of chimes that contain steel bells are:

Belmont Lancs England St Peter 6 10-1-17 G SD 673 158 Steel Bells -

Each bell has an internal clapper and there is no keyboard or 
Ellacombe -
just two lines of three ropes hanging down, so it is possible for one 
person to chime one or two bells. Hung in two rows of three on large 
timber beams at 45 degrees to the vertical! (DLC)

unique feature!
