"Lightcliffe (8, 4cwt) were, I believe, cast (1970) on that basis -
formerly 8, 20cwt!  Presumably Pateley Bridge as well."
Yes, I believe so. In both cases the old frame was used, and the
fittings included bar headstocks which are cheaper than cast iron ones.
These rings were cast with very light front bells - treble about
three-quarters of a hundredweight in both cases.
