Year | Event | Reference |

1876 | A new ring of six bells, cast by John Warner the previous year, arrived amidst great celebrations at their home in Brigg, Lincs. They were paraded through the town and taken to the church where they were dedicated. After being hung they were rung for the first time in Easter week. Two trebles were added on October 11, 1878 to complete the octave. | CBLi336 |

1913 | The first silent peal to be rung on twelve tower bells was one of Stedman Cinques at St Michael, Cornhill by the Ancient Society of College Youths. It was ten years earlier - all but a day - that the first silent twelve-bell peal had been rung on handbells. See February 23, 1903. | RW1913/142 |

1926 | The first peal on the augmented bells at St Ebbes, Oxford was one of Stedman Triples, conducted by H Miles. Two new trebles had been installed in this year as the gift of the ringers of England in memory of James W Washbrook, who had died the previous Christmas Day. This was the second time the bells had been augmented to eight; they were a six in the eighteenth century, made eight in the early part of the nineteenth, and reduced to six again within half a century. | RW1926/146 |

1975 | The longest peal of Pudsey Surprise Major, 13,440 changes, was rung on this date at Accrington, Lancs in 7 hours and nine minutes, conducted by Richard J Parker. | RW1975/260 |

2011 | About 12.50pm local time, ten kilometres south-east of Christchurch, New Zealand an earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale hit the cathedral. The spire collapsed and destroyed parts of the roof. The 1978 Taylor ring of twelve disappeared into the rubble. | RW2011/196 |
