For each performance, following the tower's name and location are given the number of bells in the tower and the weight and strike note of the Tenor (the heaviest bell in the ring). Where the exact weight of the Tenor is known it is given in the traditional way using the British imperial units of Hundredweight, Quarters and Pounds (cwt-qtr-lb) in which there are 28 pounds in a quarter, four quarters in a hundredweight, and 20 hundredweight in a ton (one hundredweight is approximately equal to 50.8 kilograms); otherwise it is estimated to the nearest quarter of a hundredweight.

If not all of the bells in the tower were used for a particular performance – such as when ringing six bells at an eight-bell tower – it should be assumed that the ringing took place on the heaviest or "back" bells, unless the footnote to the performance states otherwise.

Note that my own name appears in bold text for no other reason than to make it easier to spot.
