Groton bells (really)

  Greg Russell (Groton alumnus, the person who pointed out the painted
weights to me) had the idea to ask Whitechapel. This is the response

       >>The information that you have from our tuning book is perfectly

       correct. The net and gross weights painted on to the bells relate
       the shipping weights. The net weight for the tenor is the
       weight of the bell and headstock whilst the gross weight is the
       weight of bell, headstock and pallet.

       Yours sincerely
