A few from Kent spring to mind.............

Brookland, Kent - cannons of old tenor preserved in church

Lympne, Kent - old bell wheel mounted on ringing room wall and used as a 
coat rack

Canterbury Cathedral - various fittings from the old 12 preserved in the 
anti room

Kingsnorth Kent - clappers from the old 5 preserved as a feature in the 
railings of the ringing gallery

Dover - I think some of the old ropes from Dover ended up on the walls of 
the local Wetherspoons

Cardiff - The Duke of Wellington (alas now a trendy pub) had a sally from 
St Johns on the Last Order bell - a gift from the Cardiff Student 
Bellringing Society.
