1792A ringing competition between the Sileby and Barrow societies at the opening of the bells at Hathern, Leics led to some acrimonious advertisements and challenges between the two teams. The Leicester Journal records language such as: “To the Dastardly Ringers of BARROW”, and “To the Hostile Ringers of SILEBY in reply to their SCURRILOUS Language", etc. A further ringing match took place, the outcome of which is uncertain.RW1984/14
1798The new twelve at St Chad, Shrewsbury were opened. Cast by Thomas Mears, they had only arrived by water four days earlier! The Society of College Youths was invited to take part in the opening - paying their own fares! - and rang a peal of 5184 Grandsire Cinques in the afternoon. Thomas Blakemore called the peal and Philip Pilgrim rang the tenor single-handed, an unusual occurrence on a newly hung tenor in the eighteenth century.RW1940/340
1936A new tower, containing a fine new ring of eight by Gillett and Johnston, was added to Christ Church, Fairwarp, Sussex. Donated by Sir Bernard Eckstein, the tower was dedicated on this day and the bells rung for the first time. This is the only ring of bells in Ashdown Forest.nv
1964The first peal to be rung by a band all with the Christian name of Michael took place on this day at Great Tew, Oxon. The method was Yorkshire Surprise Major, and the conductor was Michael J Fellows.NP
