"I agree. The bells themselves may not be much but put together and in 
their setting, they are quite something and unique."

They are also the only complete pre-true harmonic 12 to survive in their
original state (i.e. not tuned since, canons retained on those bells which
originally had them). As such, I strongly believe that they should be listed
- they are not at present. They are an important example of the development
of English bellfounding in the C19.
