Rung half-muffled on a modal six (1,3,4,5,7,8) by members of the local band after the funeral of the chatelaine of Chilham Castle, Tessa Wheeler. Tessa, with her husband Stuart, was Patron of the Living of Chilham church. She reestablished the 400 year old bequest by the Castle's builder Sir Dudley Digges to give a purse of coins to the ringers on his birthday anniversary, & also the "Chilham Chase", a foot race for young men & maidens of good repute in the parish.
