The frames side used from Canterbury were from the upper frame, which 
was added when the ring was augmenterd in 1923. This frame contained 
the second and third.

Can't remember if they used the metal headstocks from Canterbury's two 
trebles or timber headstocks from the older bells - it's nearly 25 
years ago now ...how time flies!
