Year | Event | Reference |

1734 | On this day Mikhail Motorin cast the heaviest bell in the world, the Tsar Kolokol, at Moscow. Its reputed weight is 193 tons and its principal dimensions are 19 feet tall, 22 feet six inches in diameter and twenty-three inches thick at the sound bow. Filling the mould took 36 minutes. See May 29, 1737. | JRN30 |

1799 | 6,006 Grandsire Cinques was rung at St. Chad's, Shrewsbury, by the Union society, conducted by Richard Cross. This was the local men's reply to the opening peal on the bells by the College Youths rung on July 14, 1799. | nv |

1912 | A brand new ring of ten was dedicated in a purpose built campanile at Hingham, Massachusetts. This was the first ring of ten to be installed in the USA. The bells were a memorial to the immigrant settlers and founders of Hingham, many of whom had emigrated from Hingham in Norfolk. The erection of the bell-frame was beset with problems. The stonemasons altered the dimensions of the bell-chamber from the architect's designs, and the walls had to be chiselled away to fit in the bellframe. | RW1912/34 |

1915 | The first handbell quarter peal to be rung in South Africa, Plain Bob Minor, was conducted by Revd. G H Ridout. | nv |

1967 | 11,872 Glasgow Surprise Major was rung at Edgbaston, Birmingham in 6 hours and 36 minutes, composed by Peter Border and conducted by Roderick Pipe. This became the longest length in the method. | RW1967/911 |
