"ANY combination of lbs has an equal chance of occurring as any other, so one tower having all ending is zero is possible, however seemingly unlikely."

I've heard a rumour that the tenor at Helmsley actually weighed 15-0-0, but Taylor's published the weight as 14-3-27 because 15-0-0 seemed too unbelievable. Don't know whether this is true, and Andrew H is apparently accompanying the two new trebles to Lundy so won't be around to answer.
