Do the bells retain their canons?

I see that this week's RW mentions the restoration of the heavy five at
Ham (which, in true Somerset fashion, proved quite a bit lighter than
reputed!) Does anyone know exactly what was done? it mentions that the
was badly cracked, and I wonder whether this was a recent development. I
rang there a few times three or four years ago, and I don't remember
noticing that it sounded cracked.

The 4th was welded and the treble tuned. All five have been rehung with
new fittings in the old frame. The 4th had been badly cracked for years
- see tower advisors report in past B&W reports.
