It isn't clear from this which of the original three bells is the survivor.
Do we have its diameter?

  L'Estrange lists one bell inscribed "Anno Domini 1624". GAD's NBR
spreadsheet agrees, adding that the founders are William & Alice Brend. L'
Estrange says that there were previously three bells, weighing 10, 12 and 18
cwt. One was "split" and the other "never used", and were sol din 1780.

  Dear Sir,

  I have found your very interesting site.

  I wondered if perhaps you could suggest where to start looking about the
  Bell which hangs in our church?

  The tower is a fine one and I would have thought that originally it could
  would have held more bells than the single one we have.

  I am a very new church warden and do not know where to start - I have yet
  explore the tower!

  The bell was restored a few years back and we get it swinging and it tolls
  for our services.

  Weswick is a very small parish (56 adults on the Parliamentary Electoral
  Roll) and only 4 of us on the church roll - so any help information would
  received very gratefully.

  Many thanks for your time.

  Kind regards

  Chris Sanham
  Church Warden
  St Botolph Westwick
