And Filey too - two of the heavy four were recast into the fine!!!!!! ring of 6. The new light
6 were installed into the original 4 bell frame - 2 bells in each pit (large frame originally
made from timbers from a fishing boat), and the two heavy ones were put in the 4th pit in
the middle and are now used as clock and service bells.
