I don't know if this is relevant. No date available on source.

Extract from Sermon preached by Revd W C Lukis at the rededication of Wes=
Tanfield bells,

"..Mr Mallaby, who had so admirably performed the work". "Ringers should =
on ground floor, unfortunately the bequest by the late rector had the=20
condition that ringers should be upstairs with outside access."

Lukis's notebook gives three bells, all by S S Ebor, 1695, 1724, 1685.

The present ring are a mixture of Smith and Warner bells. They were rehun=
g by Whitechapel in about 1980, probably in the old frame although I haven'=
t been up to the bells to confirm this. The ringing chamber is till upstair=
s with outside access - just as well; given the height of the bells from th=
e ground, they wouldn't be easy if rung from the ground floor
West Tanfield is of course prime Mallaby territory - it is only a few mil=
es from Masham.
