And it would be highly unlikely that they would be "ringable" now!

Surely another give-away that the frame has been installed level is 
that the bells swinging N-S appear level in their pits. :-)

It would be entertaining trying to ring them if they were hung 
parallel with the stone courses! 

Interesting to note that the original installation has all swinging N-
S, with the exception of the then 7th and 8th. Two trebles of 12 
(top tier) now swing E-W as well.
