If, as the report says, it's at least 500 years old then, alas, it's the treble.

    News item from The Northern Echo - Darlington,UK:


    "THIEVES climbed a tower to steal a church bell thought to be at 
    least 500 years old. The theft from St Michael and All Angels Church, 
    in Downholme, ..."

    The accompanying photo shows not a tower but a double bell-cote on 
    the end wall of the building; one bell remains.
