As far as I know those listed in Dove but NOT in TowerBase still exist as
such. Of the others; Baldersby should not have been removed from Dove and
should be reinstated like Ingleton and Rockbeare have been. Datchet have
been augmented to 6 and hung dead. Harbledown have been rehung dead. Hennock
have been rehung for swing chiming. Ketton were rehung for swing chiming
back in 1897. Wreningham have been rehung for swing chiming. The others are
also listed on the lost rings list except Swinford about which I know
nothing and Sevington ("swing chiming with full circle wheels") - has anyone
rung here recently and can vouch for their inclusion in Dove?
