Photo 3: The bells are on two levels this is the lower level showing the treble and the tenor, again the orange helps give scale.

Photo 4: The Tenor. The bells are kept rung up because of their weight. This photo is upside-down so the inscription may be read. The tenor with the clapper weights over two ton.
