yes, it was Thornborough (in Bucks). I'm pretty sure they made no attempt to
tune them, though.

Apparently a group led by David Town have recently been doing some work on
the steel five at Willingham (tenor hung dead). They recently rang a quarter
of minimus on the front four with the tenor chimed behind using the
Ellacombe - much as is done at Liverpool Municipal Offices, I believe.
Apparently they intened to rehang the Willingham tenor for ringing again in
the near future.
