Year | Event | Reference |

1731 | The Painswick Youths rang their second peal of Grandsire Triples. See February 19, 1731 and March 26, 1731. | nv |

1734 | The Painswick Youths rang the first of their long peals with one of 8,064 Grandsire Caters. A board in Painswick church records that the peal took 4 hours and 45 minutes. This was the longest length in the method at the time, supplanting a 6012 rung by the City Scholars on November 12, 1732. See March 1, 1735. | nv |

1735 | The Painswick Youths exceeded their record, set up a year before, with a peal of 10,080 Grandsire Caters in 6 hours and 27 minutes. See March 29, 1762. | nv |

1881 | At Heckington, Lincs the bells were rededicated by the Bishop of Nottingham after the old six were rehung and two new trebles added. The cost of rehanging was borne by excess funds accumulated by the Heckington Flower Show! | CBLi451 |

1889 | H H Chandler conducted 13,440 Canterbury Pleasure Major at Warnham, Sussex in 7 hours and 45 minutes. The peal, composed by A Knights, gives the extent with the tenors together. Henry Burstow arrived to umpire the peal, but was conscripted into ringing as one of the band did not turn up! | BN1889/619 |
