Year | Event | Reference |
---|---|---|

1773 | The Chapel Youths were a society of ringers from St. Thomas, Stourbridge. They rang “a quarter peal of Bob Majors, 10,080 changes, in six hours twenty-two minutes.” Samuel Green conducted the peal and James Dovey rang the tenor. See October 12, 1775. | RW1940/328 |

1883 | An attempt for 11,111 changes of Stedman Caters at Fulham by the Ancient Society of College Youths failed after nearly ten thousand changes had been rung. They had rung for 6 hours and 8 minutes when a shift course occurred. See December 8, 1883. | nv |

1888 | The Burton-on-Trent Society rang 6,720 London Surprise Major in 4 hours and 39 minutes. This was the longest peal in the method and an excellent accomplishment for a local band. | nv |

1913 | Six days after their dedication by the Bishop of Stepney, the bells of St Leonard, Shoreditch were opened. The four trebles had been recast, and the back eight tuned to “Canon Simpson's principle”. One of Warners all-steel frames had been installed similar to the one at Chelmsford Cathedral. See September 27, 1913. The bells, previously restored in 1875, had been unpealable for many years. | RW1913/312 |

1930 | An ill-fated band rang a peal of 17,687 Grandsire Cinques at Painswick in 11 hours and 36 minutes. To their chagrin, the composition was found to be false shortly afterwards. | nv |

1935 | The first peal of Spliced Surprise Major on handbells was rung at Oxhey, Hertfordshire, conducted by H. G. Cashmore. The methods were London and Cambridge and each course was called L,C,L. The Ringing World described the performance: “A new stage in the progress of ringing has been reached.” | nv |

1941 | The second occasion on which Holt's Original peal of Grandsire Triples was rung silent and non-conducted on handbells took place on this day at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, rung by members of the Ancient Society of College Youths. See March 11, 1887. | RW1992/203 |

1980 | Robert B. Smith became the third man to ring 2000 peals with one of Stedman Caters at Lock-ington, Leicestershire. The other four members of the band had all rung over 1000 peals. PPR | |

1986 | The first long length to be rung in North America was 11,418 changes of Erin Caters, rung at the Old Post Office, Washington, in 6 hours and 57 minutes. E. J. Futcher arranged the attempt and also composed and conducted the peal. It was the longest length to be rung in the method. | RW1987/81 |
