  I don't have sufficient experience of Kent or Shropshire to comment on those counties - but I certainly think CJND was right about right about Berkshire.  Are there any really first rate rings in the county? Cannot say that I have come across anything spectacularly good in Hampshire yet either, although I like Portsmouth Cathedral. 

  Presumably Berkshire and Hampshire have always been relatively prosperous counties, so it seems strange that there are so few good rings of bells to be found thereabouts.
