On the 2nd, the inscription and one of the shields on the 14thC bell were apparently reproduced in facsimile on its 15thC successor, only the initial cross being altered to the 'Iesu merci ladi help' used by the London founders. The site also has some admirable photographs taken I think by RCO when the bells were being rehung in 1979 and the different respective shapes and type of canons will be seen when comparing this bell with the 14thC tenor.
