Bobbie May and Kate Crennell of the Oxford D.G. have been working to produce
something along the lines of a "Ringers' Guide" to the bells in the Oxford
D.G., including full details of weights and inscriptions. I was contacted by
Kate, who had heard that I was attempting to produce Oxfordshire and
Berkshire "lists" to update the Sharpe books. I have been able to supply a
fair amount of more up-to-date information, and Kate has been able to supply
me with details of some of the very recent jobs, but given the contractors
who have carried out the majority of the work in those areas, we have pretty
much gone as far as we can with full updates. There's certainly still too
many gaps in both Oxfordshire and Berkshire to make it worthwhile me
producing lists for either county, and I don't think that Kate and Bobbie
have got any further either.

It's in the pipe line and should be available later this year. The 
main problem is that it looks as if we shall have to have a copy of 
the book unstitched in order to get good scans as we can't locate any 
unbound copies of the work.
