I never saw tenor or treble - they were already out there. 2,4 & 5 were tuned at WBF and then sent here and a new 3rd was cast and tuned here. The 2nd was a M&S 1958 bouy bell with a frilly edge and equally frilly harmonics, the 4th was from Doddiscombsleigh that we sold to GAD for a local project that ended up via London back here, JT 1961 and the 5th was a T Mears bell of 1806 that had been well gouged, so I guess it must have been the treble of an eight to need that amount of metal out of it. Treble WBF 1974 and tenor J Rudhall 1823.

Yes, seen that thanks - but I wondered if anyone had fuller details.
Whitechapel were certainly involved - they tuned at least two of the bells.
