The hour bell at Truro Cathedral - the main ring are in the north-west tower, and the five clock bells and sanctus bell are in the Green tower (east side of S transept). The quarter bells are hung dead (on ringing headstocks with no other ringing fittings?), the sanctus on a timber headstock with no other ringing fittings (?), and the hour bell with full ringing fittings including a cast iron Taylor headstock in an H frame (?)
