If you mean just the thin tenor, rather than a complete ring .....
You will have a job to find a better one than Husborne Crawley (by M1
junction 13) - 4'0", 18-2-12 mid-way between D and E flat (or seing as it's
Nigel asking, D 'Old Concert Pitch'!). Taylor, 1911 from memory. The
1977 recast 7th is on a similar scale, circa 13 cwt.

Both Claybrooke and Ilminster are much thinner than the rest of the
ring, I think, and although a remarkable sounding bell I wouldn't call
Ilminster an example to follow!
