Many thanks to those who responded to the enquiry regarding four rings remo=
ved from the church. We now have the year of removal for Stanion and Throck=

As some of you may be aware I am writing an article for the RW regarding lo=
st rings. This is not about any specific ring but about the trends which ar=
e apparent when we analyse what happened to the ring and when it happened. =
Consequently any information to fill the gaps would be greatly appreciated.

There are several conversions to chiming only where I have no idea of the y=
ear of conversion (or even approximate year). Can anyone help with the foll=
