RWMC did an inspection there c1970. I was told that when the back 5 were rung, the movement was acceptable, but when the treble was rung the amount became excessive. My mother's family all come from near Corbridge, some still living there, and no-one can remember the bells being "rung properly".

Corbridge bells are right at the top of the Saxon tower and I feel that an 
independant frame from ground level is unlikely to be entertained. Ideally the 
bells need to come down much lower. They were last rung ( as far as I am aware 
) in 1973 when we had the Taylor wobble-ometer m/c to check the movement.
