NOTE: Pitch and weight do not yield identical sort orders because of differences in scale (thickness) to which the bells were cast. In this list, pitch takes precedence over weight.
NOTE: This index does not list "unringable" towers, i.e., those where the bells were originally (or reportedly) hung for change-ringing but are no longer usable as such. Those installations may be found in the combined index to all North American sites.

Key to column headings:
The table is sorted first on the pitch of the tenor bell, then on the actual weight. Apparent inconsistencies are most likely the result of differences in scale, i.e., the relationship between thickness and inside diameter.
You can see the count of instruments corresponding to each note on the summary page.
