Sounded just fine when I rang there last year, so I guess its OK!

How does this appeal?

We have made 23.5" diameter bells at the thinnest 1303Hz and thickest 2230H=
z which is an interval of just over a sixth.

It is therefore possible to make a ring of 6 with the tenor 2-2-0 and trebl=
e 4-1-0 all bells being the same diameter.

Any takers, names on a postcard to...............!

Is it made of tissue paper? It must be nearly that thin!
