 Presumably the canons were removed from the two trebles when they 
were fitted with iron headstocks, so the exact weights for these no 
longer obtain.
As to the 56-1-14 for the tenor, I have long since suspected that 
this is Taylors "guestimate" from 1877. Chris Pickford did try to 
check this out, but Taylors records for the period are in too much of 
a muddle. Whitechapel told me that they rehung the tenor "between the 
wars", but did not say whether they actually had it in the foundry 
and weighed it. Whitechapel said that the bells had never been tuned.
Anyone have any more details on the tenor weight ?
