1732The City Scholars rang the first record length of Grandsire Caters, 6,012 changes, at St. Giles, Cripplegate. Three men rang the tenor. This was the second peal on the bells. See March 17, 1726 and March 1, 1734. During this year the City Scholars had rung at least 9 peals, more than any other society in one year. This record remained for twenty years.nv
1774A peal of Grandsire Cinques was the first peal on the twelve bells of St. Peter Mancroft.nv
1795The Cumberland Youths rang a double length peal of Bob Major, 10,080 changes, at Edmonton, Middlesex. George Gross conducted the peal that took 6 hours and 29 minutes.CuY185
1881After twenty tons of metal had been heating all day in three special furnaces at John Taylor & Co of Loughborough, the mould for Great Paul was filled in four minutes at 10.30 p.m. The actual weight of the bell is 16 tons, 14 cwt, 2 qr, 19 lbs.WTC18
1901A peal of Bob Major at Netherton, Worcestershire, rung by a band all with the surname, “Smith”, was claimed as the first by a band all with the same surname. However, it wasn't! See November 20, 1809 and December 19, 1894.NP
1907At a meeting in the Dale Temperance Hotel, Old Square, Warwick the Warwickshire Guild of Church Bell Ringers was formed. Several attempts were made during the 1920s and 1930s to change the name, but it was not until 1945 it was renamed the Coventry Diocesan Guild.nv
1991A record length of the very difficult method, Orion Surprise Maximus, was rung at All Saints, Worcester in 8 hours and 19 minutes. After the peal, 12,432 changes in length, the band considered they should now be certified as “brain dead”!nv
