To celebrate the lighting of the Dungeness Beacon commemorating the 200th anniversary of the death of Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. Four of the bells would have sounded out in 1805, including the present 3rd bell recast by Thomas Mears in that year.
Also a 50th birthday compliment to the ringer of the 5th bell.
