The tower was not octagonal but markedly rectangular/oblong.

It was not a ten-bell frame, but there was certainly space on the upper tier
for another two bells. The eight were hung four-on-four, and all swinging
in the same direction.

I have a photo of the bells on the upper tier, and another of the tenor.
Lugging a 5" x 4" format camera and flash equipment up the fire-damaged
ladder was no joke.
