I rather suspect an exaggerated contemporary weight at Warminster - the wei=
ght 27-2-13 coming from the church records at the time the bell was install=
ed in 1737. The bells were rehung by Bowell in 1914 and the canons may have=
been removed them. Mears & Stainbank rehung and retuned them in 1960

I should think they must have tuned it as well - the canons are unlikely =
weight that much.
