Sorry if this is old news.

>From The Salisbury Journal, July 25th 1791

Monday last, a new and exceedingly musical peal of eight bells, cast by Mr
Mears of Whitechapel, was opened at Romsey, by the Society of College Youths
from London, with a peal of Oxford Treble Bobs [sic], consisting of 5248
changes, being the extent of thirteen courses, and which was completed in
three hours 13 minutes, with that accuracy which distinguishes the
performances of that company, and to the entire satisfaction of the
inhabitants of the town, as well as a numerous concourse of hearers
assembled from different parts of the country.
