There is a ringer's notebook in the Guildford DG library which Malcolm 
Loveday had come across and which he showed at a district striking 
competition some months back.

It was handwritten in beautiful copperplate writing and made references 
to a few towers in the Middlesex / London area and included details of 
some peals but no definitives dates or names.

The library was considering what to do with this book in the longer term.
