'FTEL' 29 July 2005:

"The bell historians had taken note of the proposal to rename the
Diocese of Southwell as Southwell and Nottingham.  There were
disparaging comments about the practice of designating important
churches as minsters.  David Bryant thought it nonsensical.  David
Cawley accused him of being po-faced.  Was this a hint that St.  Mary
de Castro was in line for an upgrade?"
