I generally agree with David's comments about Dove, though I do quite
like the large size - then again I don't usually carry it around with
me. I found the sections at the back of previous editions very
interesting and was saddened that they were curtailed.

Perhaps someone can verify this? Have they, as he puts it, hijacked
the project, or did they actually instigate it?
On completely different subjects:
I've saw a few years ago a wonderful photograph of the tower at
Emscote, Warks, as the explosive to demolish it had just been set
off. The tower was still recognisable but was in the process of
disintegration. Does anyone have a copy I could have for the Church
Bells of Warwickshire site?
Playing Devil's Advocate; recently the steel rings at Bassaleg,
Horninglow, Bamford in the Peak and Randwick have all been replaced
by "conventional" bells. Should we care if the remaining steel rings
are likewise lost?
BTW The D & N are actively investigating the possibility of rehanging
the tenor at Willington for ringing.
