Except that the metric value given for Preston's tenor is that for the ring 
of bells that was removed from the tower eight years ago. Or maybe it's just 
an inexact conversion...

For general purposes, to get an approximate figure, it helps to know that 
10cwt is 509kg. We have started to give metric as well as imperial figures 
in the Lancashire Association Annual Report. This is useful in answering 
the question "How heavy is it?" as opposed to "How easy is it to ring?". 
Obviously as they are conversions if the imperial figure is an estimate, the 
metric equivalent won't be accurate to the exact kilogram.
