The peal speed seems to suggest this was rung on the front 10. Furthermore, there are contemporary references to the front 8 and 10:being rung to performances at this tower. Also, there is a reference to the ‘poor go’ of the tenors and peals here often had two ringers for 11 and 12.

The sources need to be found.
