Could it definitely ever have been rung full circle? It would need a pulley box.

The old tenor (21 cwt) at Beverley Minster, hung for ringing (although without stay or slider) in the SW tower with the slow-swinging 7-ton bourdon Great John. The ring are in the NW tower.

Also, the 8th of the old ten remains in the central tower of Chester Cathedral in the old 10-bell frame. Does it still have ringing fittings?
