But wasn't that because Mark was seriously hacked off because he'd been
determined to have a Whitechapel ring and the PCC had over-ruled him?
That's what I've heard, anyway.

There were a number of bells rejected from the Leighton Buzzard ring
because they had slight musical imprefections. One (not sure what it was
to be) is now 5/12 at Newport, IOW, and a rejected 6th is now 7/10 at
Charminster, Dorset. I think there might be some more, but I don't know
what happened to them.
