David Holmes of the Overton campanile may be the person to talk to as 
a few years ago,he made some out of copper piping with the intention 
of trying to work out a way of hanging them for ringing.
I seem to recall he had an octave siting around in his loft a few 
years ago.
I have Davids phone number if this is of any use,but please mail me 
off list for it if required.
