It is indeed and is hung for slow swinging. When we rang there on a 
tour, I asked the local RM what the extra rope was for and he 
mentioned it was a 26cwt bell from England. He let me swing it and 
then mentioned it was from Glastonbury and I realised I had once rung 
a 1/4 peal on it in it's old home. On the same trip I rang several old 
Bishopstoke bells in different towers I had rung before and also some 
of the Gosport bells although I had not rung on those before they were 
removed. Small world.
