"I see on Campanophile that a peal was been rung on the ring of dumb
bells at Hopton Heath yesterdsy - presumably using a simulator. I wonder
what the CC's response to this will be - isn't there something in the
peal rules about peals having to be rung on bells? Flowerpots seem to
have got away with it recently, but will lumps of metal which make no
noise themselces and rely on simulated sound?"

Possibly a little off topic (?) but I think that the CC nowadays doesn't
care what peals people claim to ring. They just worry about what they
record, and they won't record a performance such as this. Their view is "if
people want to call it a peal they can".


P.S. Thanks to Michael Wilby for clarifying the situation at Trinity NYC.
A lot of rumours have been going around, some provoked by some people in the
very heart of the project (both in the UK and New York), but in fact are all
consistent generally with Michael's comments.
