If a major project is being contemplated, surely it isn't out of the 
question to keep the old bell - on display, or whatever, and have a new 
one. An old bell which cannot be reused surely isn't that much or an 
issue, as opposed to an historic but unusable frame which would be 
potentially more difficult.
