1725The first peal of Maximus was one of Plain Bob, rung by the College Youths at St Brides, Fleet Street. Benjamin Annable composed the peal of 5,200 changes, also conducting the peal in 4 hours and 4 minutes.CY5
1776The Cumberland Youths rang the first peal of "real" Double Grandsire Cinques at St Saviour's, Southwark, composed and conducted by George Gross, Senior. In "real" double methods calls are made when the treble lies behind as well as when it is at lead.CuY87
1805The Cumberland Youths, with George Gross, Junior as composer and conductor, rang the record length of 6,129 Stedman Caters at St Leonard's, Shoreditch. This peal, which took 4 hours and 12 minutes, was to stand as the longest peal in the method for nearly forty years. A previous attempt eight days earlier failed with a broken clapper. See November 13, 1797 and January 25, 1842.S153
1927The new tower and bells at Cresswell, Derby were dedicated. The scheme for the work had been planned some thirteen years earlier, but the war had halted fund raising. John Taylor of Loughborough cast the eight bells, tenor 12 cwt. 2 qr. 4 lb, on their “true harmonic system”.RW1927/154
1927John H Cheeseman conducted an 11,008 Double Norwich Court Bob Major at Erith, Kent. The peal, composed by J W Parker, took 6 hours and 36 minutes. With this peal the conductor completed peals in 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 17 thousand changes.RW1927/136
