Wallasey are quite good, IMHO. I've long wanted to ring a peal on the back
6 to see for real!

What date are Childwall and Nether Peover (where I have rung, but can
remember more about the splendid timber framed church than the bells!)?

What are the back six at St Nicholas, Wallasey like? It's now 35 
years since I rang on them as a six and seem to remember them as quite good
...but absence does make the heart grow fonder!
