The Watford Parish Church bellringers last month rang a peal of London Surprise Major, 5,184 changes, in three hours seven minutes. It is of interest to mention that Watford is only the third place in the county where a peal of London Surprise has been rung entirely by local ringers. The other two places are Bennington, as long ago as 1870, and Oxhey in 1910.
