Tipton and other Lost Rings

It was me who sent in the grid reference shown in TowerBase for Tipton. It
is based on reliable information provided to me by someone who rings in the
area, so I am as confident as I can be that it is correct. The church was
still shown on OS map 139 that I borrowed from the library, but the map was
probably around 10 years old and it was only shown as a "+" (i.e. no tower
or spire).

Over the past 12 months or so, I have sent in well in excess of 100 grid
references for Lost Rings, based on personal knowledge and information
derived from many different sources and people (thanks again if you were one
of these). So, if you spot any that are wrong then you can blame me.
Better still, drop me a line and I will get it corrected.

There are still around 30 towers listed with no known grid reference, for
which I currently have insufficient information to be confident of the exact
location. If you have any information that could help me then this would be
gratefully accepted. If possible, I would prefer a description of the
location as well as the grid reference, plus any other supporting
information that you may have.
