and I didn't do any sort of report. They're not immediately ringable -
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.
