Rung on the 60th anniversary of John's first peal, rung at this tower, on the same bell. The peal was Minor in 3 methods, rung after meeting short for Stedman Triples. The methods and composition rung today were chosen because a peal attempt of this was lost here in October 1966 during the secretive build up to the first peal of 23 atw.
