The playing of bell recordings from loudspeakers is actually illegal 
in the Canterbury Diocese. One church put speakers in rather than have 
their ring of 4 rung. The architect picked up on this and obliged them 
to seek a retrospective faculty. It was only granted for a particular 
period on the proviso that the church did something about getting its 
bells repaired. Alas nothing has happened.


It's very much frowned upon in Salisbury Diocese, but I'm not sure if it's
illegal. I think Wootton Rivers used a recording for a time, but they do
now have proper bells.
