Thanks.  I shall see if I can find a copy.

I'd heard there was something odd about it, but not the 
details, so thank you for that.  Based on the account in The 
Ringing World at the time of the 1930 rehang, they had been 
on two levels, with the back five in the c1611 Brend frame. 
Was it perhaps an anticlockwise five with a clockwise 
three-bell frame on top, meaning the three trebles fell 
amongst the others?  (Or possibly the five was clockwise an 
the three anticlockwise.)
