old fittings in a fairly poor state, as I recall. There isn't much 
light in the belfry and I only made sketchy notes

The 2nd is definitely cracked and almost tuneless. The tenor would 
hardly move when swung and only did so with an awful grinding noise. 
It also wouldnt sound no matter how much I checked it. The treble 
seemes OK and swung freely.
