I think that Burley-in-Wharfedale has a system that plays a recording 
of, IIRC, Redcliffe from their small tower. (I went there 20-odd years 
ago because the TC of Burley in Leeds happened to live in B-in-W and 
2+2 = a journey of about 20 miles extra to that required!)

Meriden, whose bells' ringability is a bit suspect, recorded our peal 
there in 1995 and used to broadcast part of it on Sundays. The 
speakers are certainly still in the belfry
