Possibly only the second quarter peal in the method (the first being many years ago, before the new rules on method naming), an extension to Caters of Middlesex Bob Triples.
The band (well, the conductor) had wished to name the method Westminster Bob Caters (given that the name Middlesex Bob Caters has been applied to an alternative extension of the Triples - rung at St Margaret's to a quarter peal on 5th June 2017), but apparently this name must be applied to a twin hunt version of Westminster Bob Major.
The method rung at St Margaret's has now - by majority vote of the band members - been named Big Ben Bob Caters, acknowledging the absence of that bell sounding at our meet time of 1800. Big Ben - we missed you!
First quarter peal in the method for all the band.
Circled the tower eight times: 3 (and five times as conductor).
