I had a ring on the High Beech bells some years ago, using the Ellacombe 
like apparatus; I think that was in 1990. On just checking I see Dove 
gave them as hemispherical, 4 cwt. The total weight given on ebay of 360 
kg is around 7cwt, but apparently for just five bells. High Beech is 
certainly South of England as far as I would understand the term.
