I meant to type 1899 - which I think is what is given in Bliss and Sharpe
and which is evidently slightly out. I had a look at the bells a few years
ago - 12 on one level in a Taylor H frame, and the flat 6th and extra treble
in individual lowside frames on top. The two trebles still have the bar
headstocks provided by Taylor's. If I remember rightly, there is a series of
photos in the ringing chamber showing the bells on carts and their canons
being knocked off with sledgehammers.
I agree with Matthew that they are a good twelve.
