Dave has been away during April - and he is snowed under with emails since 

The tenor is (i believe) ex Christ Church, Rode Hill, Somerset. 33" dia 
ยข5.75cwt. 1824 John Rudhall. This was removed about 5 years ago when thisChurch 
was made redundant along with nearby Woolverton (2 medieval Bristol bells -now 
at Bradford on Avon (HT) and Buscot (Oxon).

Incidentally - we removed the long unringable six at St Lawrence, Rode (same 
benefice) 2 weeks ago. They should be ringing again sometime next year.
