My one and only visit (to grab the tower) was on 04/Mar/1989.  It was a
regular Watford District monthly practice with no indication that ringing
was about to cease, as far as I recall.

Subject: [Bell Historians] oxhey bells

A couple of months ago I was looking through some old annual reports for the
hertford county association and I noticed that oxhey where first condemned
in 1989 due to worn out fittings before being declared totally unringable in
1990 due to severe structural problems, whilst I can probably understand the
reasoning for this I am curious to know weather this was a long term problem
or one that had only appeared in the years prior to their condemnation. I
would also be interested to know if anyone has any memories of ringing on
them as I understand that most of the ropes dropped rather close the wall
and the bells themselves where apparently anything but tuneful.
