Hasn't that been rehung on a cast iron stock by Fred Pembleton?

I can think of a few heavier ones. Some of the front bells at St Patrick's, 
Dublin, have bar stocks - not sure how far round these go but no doubt 
somebody will know. The two trebles of ten at Selby used to have them, but 
they were replaced when the bells were augmented.
