1766George Meakins conducted one of the first peals of Treble Bob Royal to be rung with one of 6000 changes at Shoreditch in 4 hours and 21 minutes. Many famous peals of Treble Bob Royal followed in later years.CY131
1906A great fire, which probably started in the organ, swept through Selby Abbey. The central tower burned like a chimney and most of the eight bells crashed to the floor, leaving the remainder precariously balanced on what was left of the frame. Within two years the Abbey was rebuilt and a new ring of 10 cast. See also March 30, 1690.CGC261
1985The first peal was rung on the new ring of ten installed at St. Lawrence, Christ Church, Sydney, Australia.nv
1986The first peal of London Surprise Royal to be rung by a band all of whom had rung over one thousand peals, was accomplished on handbells at Watford, conducted by John Mayne.nv
