YearEventReference
1766The local men at Horsham, Sussex rang a peal of Grandsire Triples, conducted by Thomas Bristow. Thomas Lintott rang the second: he later joined the Society of Cumberland Youths and rang a number of peals with them.nv
1830The new ring of ten cast by Thomas Mears for St Peter, Liverpool was rung for the first time. See February 23, 1927.nv
1831The Norwich ringers rang 2,520 Stedman Triples on handbells, the longest length in the method performed on handbells at that time.nv
1888Members of the Oxford Diocesan Guild rang 13,247 Grandsire Caters at Appleton, Berks, composed and conducted by James W Washbrook. The peal was published as 13,265 changes, but was actually one lead shorter. It took 8 hours and 5 minutes, and was the longest peal yet rung on ten bells, surpassing the record set up 150 years earlier at Norwich. See March 8, 1738, April 22, 1889 and December 31, 1888.nv
1924The new ring of ten was dedicated at Christchurch, Swindon by the Bishop of Bristol. The report in The Ringing World congratulated Messrs Taylor & Co of Loughborough on the speed of their work, as the old frame had not been demolished until after Christmas, 1923.nv
