They, together with the ten at Derby
Cathedral, are the only surviving rings of eight or more
wholly dating to the 17th century or earlier.

>From memory - Derby are not all original. One of the bells was replaced with a different bell of a similar vintage to the rest. I'm not sure if that actually matters.
