>From the bellfoundry report on Boroughbridge.
"The Tenor may be cracked. From a visual inspection under difficult conditi=
ons, there appears to be a fine crack radiating from the cast in crown stap=
le and stretching for a distance of some 5 to 6 inches from the centre of t=
he bell. This fine crack may only be observed on the inside of the bell. Th=
e tone of the bell appears unaffected."

As for Middlesmoor
No cracks were found when the bells were rehung.=20

Is the tenor cracked?

Was one of the bells welded? It might be feasible that a bell was sent to=
Soundweld but they didn't know where it was from.
