Does anyone know of any history and/or tonal analysis done on the 
bells of Tillingham? 

They are usually referred to as a 9cwt minor 6 nominally in Bb but 
everytime I visit and try to work out which is the "wrong" note I 
usually end up picking a different bell and opinions of other ringers 
in the tower are usually divided.

The bells with the exception of the treble, are I presume the work of 
itinerant founders
