The little six at Clifton, York, all have stays - the treble is just over a
hundredweight. Unlike Pateley Bridge and Lightcliffe (which I believe have
bar headstocks on all bells), these have cast iron headstocks on the back
five and a bar headstock on the treble. They also have weights in the bottom
of the wheels to make them feel heavier. I don't think the stays on the
front bells get broken very often.
