You could try Emmanuel church,Pleasington,Blackburn,Lancashire-one 
bell said to have come from Russia and documented in parish records 
as being made of Cast Iron-It weighs at a gues 4 to 5cwt and at one 
time was hung for ringing,although there is no stay and slider 
now,but the wheel is(or was 15 years ago)intact.
It sounds awful in fact even worse than the badly corroded steel six 
at Belmont some eight miles away-oh Martin Hough bring back your ring 
of galvanised buckets !
