"If a mistake was made at St Paul's, it was by Lord Grimthorpe who 
designed the ring!"

But he didn't! He wanted Taylor's to cast them on a thick scale, like the
old Worcester ring, but they went ahead and cast them to what we would now
consider to be sensible proportions - with a tenor of 3 tons in Bb. There
was some dispute between Grimthorpe and the Taylors as a result.
