Not sure whether in fact Pier Head towers was gutted through or not.

St Andrew, Plymouth, I believe, remained in the undamaged tower - the churc=
h being gutted.

Undershaft were effectively a war 'victim' , being removed for safety and r=
ehung 'dead' after - though the church was only superficially damaged.

Pier head is the only one I can think of, but in this case the bells were=
recast after the war anyway! Rather ironically, some important rings which=
had been left in situ were destroyed (Most notably, Bow).
