I've just been doing some research on villages beneath reservoirs, of which there are several in the country. So far as I'm aware, the only one which had a ring of bells was Derwent Woodlands in Derbyshire which had a 12 cwt four. I've just looked at the entry for these in George's book, and notice that there are gaps in the information (unsurprisingly as church is gone!). Has George or anyone else come across any further information (at Taylor's?) since the book was published? I wonder whether there are any surviving details of the fittings and frame, and the missing inscription. Were the bells only in a frame for four or more? From photos which Iv'e seen, the tower looks quite small.
