You could say the same about Hereford.


Isn't it more likely that the frame was spread out to fill the copious
amounts of room so that there wasn't the need to do much drawing of the


I've seen a few M&S frame with similar holes in the middle where there
isn't any chance that a tenor would ever be added.

"The first thing to strike me was the large unused "pit" in the centre. 
Was it origialaly intended to add in a bourdon bell at some point, 


It looks to me like it's designed for the addition of a heavier tenor.
Wasn't there some discussion when they were first installed about having
a ring with a 50cwt tenor? Was the frame designed so that a heavier
tenor (presumably 40cwt-ish in C) could be added later if desired?


Anyone know?
