The bells were not removed from the tower in 1984, so not sure where the
exact tenor weight came from.

Does anyone know if Thomas Blackbourne of Salisbury has any surviving
records? He rehung the 6 bells at Penshurst, Kent in a new iron frame
with 2 new bells to make 8 in 1896. The new bells were cast by Mears
and we have weights for these. The tenor is said to weigh 17-2-11 but
there are no 'exact' weights quoted for the older bells. Whitechapel
rehung the bells in 1984 but it doesn't appear that they weighed them.
Therefore I wonder where this quoted weight comes from, and whether
Blackbourne would have weighed the bells and whether their record would
have been passed down.
