Taking up the suggestion to discuss what is, and what is not, included in
Dove, and extending it a little, I have attached two lists.

The towers in Dove.txt are those that are currently listed in Dove but NOT
in TowerBase. Those in Twr_base.txt are currently listed in TowerBase but
NOT in Dove.

There are 70 such towers in total. This excludes any differences in three
bell towers, lightweight rings and lost rings.

Please let me know whether each tower should be deleted from its list or
added to the other one. If it should be deleted then please indicate
whether this is because it has become a "lost ring" (according to the
definition given by David Kelly), or because it should never have been
listed in the first place.

I do have some of the answers already, but have included the full list for

If this is not of sufficient interest to the group then please reply direct
to me.
