1834“Great Tom” of Lincoln was cracked in 1827, and the Dean and Chapter determined in 1834 to have him recast larger. The six “Lady Bells” in the central tower badly needed rehanging, and had done so for over half a century, and the second of the ring needed recasting. They resolved to trade in the ring to repair Great Tom, and the bells were sent on this day to Whitechapel, and so Lincoln lost its second ring of bells.CBLi519
1844“Le Gros Bourdon” of Notre Dame church, Montreal, Canada cracked after being rung only ten times. At approximately eight tons, it was one of the largest bells to make a transatlantic crossing at that time. It was broken up and sent back to Whitechapel for recasting. The new bell was nearer twelve tons and was rehung on June 22 1848.nv
1882The Midlands County Association rang their first peal at Derby.nv
1888In the Bell News of this date J J Parker unveiled his celebrated “One-Part” peal of Grandsire Triples with only 90 calls.nv
1891A very destructive fire at John Taylor's Bellfoundry caused damage of over £3500. Their stores, offices and handbell tuning shop were ravaged and their tower containing eight bells was completely destroyed.nv
2004Another peal of 20,160 Spliced Treble Dodging Minor in 147 methods was rung at Cambridge on handbells. It took 6 hours and 41 minutes, conducted by A J W Tibbetts. See May 16, 2004.RW2004/782
