Yes and I only weigh eleven stone (and 35 pounds).

  It's like the carpenter who could not order a piece of wood over 3ft long
so he ordered a piece 2ft 14inches.

    Thanks to all for their help with this, on and off list. Steve Ivin
    points out that we have already discussed the sizes of the Westminster
    quarters, on April 22 2002 - David Cawley gave the sizes then. I hope
    David and George will forgive me for pointing out some discrepancies in
    the data supplied, as follows:

    Great Bede: DLC 6' 5 1/2", GAD 6' 10 1/2"
    Westminster Q2: DLC 2002 4' 0", DLC 2008 3' 8 1/16".

    Perhaps these bells are not round! :-)

    Also, regarding Alan's weight for the Wanamaker bell, 310-1-23 must be
    the correct reading as 28lbs = 1qtr. I have seen the figure of 310-1-28
    in more than one place, it is a common mis-reading. For clarity, I
    assume this is the weight of the 1923 bell which no longer exists.
