1729The local company at Kettering rang their first peal with one of 5,040 Grandsire Triples.nv
1787The first occasion in which a peal of over ten thousand changes of Triples was rung took place on this day when the ringers at Otley, Yorkshire rang Holt's Ten Part twice. It took 6 hours and 22 minutes.BN1883/159
1872The Oxford University Society was formed.RW1925/120
1892An attempt was made to ring 20,160 Canterbury Pleasure Major at Warnham, Sussex. Two bells crossed over after three hours so they stopped and had some light refreshment and then started again. This attempt was also unsuccessful after two and a half hours.BN1892/580
1902Original Major is the basis of all method ringing, being plain hunt on eight bells. As each section, or lead, is so short - only two changes - it requires a multiplicity of calls for a peal. The first peal, rung on this day, contained 477 calls!nv
1943The Universities Association was founded after the annual dinner of the Oxford University Society at Oxford. Members from four different universities rang an inaugural peal of Kent Treble Bob Major on handbells later in the day.RW1943/108
1963A record peal of 15,840 Plain Bob Minor was rung on handbells at Putney in 6 hours and 12 minutes, conducted by B J Woodruffe. See May 6, 1973.RW1963/181
