So far as I am aware, the project has been abandoned. It was somewhere in
America - not sure where.

They are currently an octave in F, with a 14 cwt tenor (the old 7th). I
understand that the intention was to remodel them back to what they were

I suspect that had the project gone ahead it may have been disappointing
unless the tower in which the bells were put was very good accoustically. I
imagine that the bells thelselves will have been very good, but it will have
been the tower acoustics which gave them the edge over many other
similar-weight rings by the same founder.
