Thank you all for your replies. I can now put a closure on my record card. There were about 25 quarters rung on the bells between 1960 and 1978.

Alan - I am afraid St. Mary Gateshead will not figure in 1/4 peal analysis 
any time soon. There were 4 bells in the 1552 inventory.
6 new bells in 1730.
8 new bells in 1788.
7th cracked in early 1970s.
Church gutted by fire.
Bells put into Diocesan storage.
Two trebles used as scrap for augmentation at St. Mary Whickham.
6 remaining bells stolen.
Church redundancy scheme 1984 and gifted to Northern Heritage Trust for 
Civic use.
Manager of building very much against installation of any bells.
regards - Howard E. J. Smith - Newcastle

>I have a note (RW p1007, 1983) that two bells were stolen, one cracked and  six bells are in store. What happened next? The last quarter peal on them was  in 1978 (see RW for 12 Jan 1979).
