1777 | The Union Society of Shrewsbury rang a 10,080 Plain Bob Major at St Mary, Shrewsbury. The peal, composed by William Doubleday Crofts of Nottingham, took 5 hours and 56 minutes. | BN1883/159 |

1777 | The Leicester Change Ringers rang 10,080 Grandsire Caters at St Margaret's, Leicester in 7 hours and 12 minutes. They went for the peal every Monday morning until they accomplished it. Four times they rang over 8,000 changes, and once over 9,000 when a missed sally lost the peal. William Bull conducted, the composition being by John Martin. A subscription was taken around the town for the ringers, which raised over £33. See March 3, 1778. | nv |

1889 | John Carter conducted his own composition of 10,272 Grandsire Major at Rowley Regis for the Birmingham Amalgamated Society. The peal, which took 6 hours and 5 minutes, remains the longest length in the method. | nv |
