The church is still there, very much closed and completely boarded up by th=
e Lichfield diocese. It is rather a fine building. I did see inside on=
ce and there were still a couple of bells and some peal boards of quality l=
ying around at the west end. The part-rebuilt west "tower" is the ground =
floor and part of the intended ringing room. TimJ's map reference is corr=

It was me who sent in the grid reference shown in TowerBase for Tipton. =
is based on reliable information provided to me by someone who rings in t=
area, so I am as confident as I can be that it is correct. The church wa=
still shown on OS map 139 that I borrowed from the library, but the map w=
probably around 10 years old and it was only shown as a "+" (i.e. no towe=
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 =
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 ex=
location. If you have any information that could help me then this would=
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.
