Many thanks Ben – very interesting.

“...I had a look in Campanalogia Improved of 1702, and found another 
'Evening Delight' (&x34x4x3x3x1x34, 4). Interestingly it is still different 
from the other methods in the peal, being a treble place method. It does 
also appear in Annable's Notebook and Monk's edition of Campanalogia of 
1766. However, it is rather false, and again a true extent is not possible 
with the usual calls - I suspect in this case this wasn't realised at the 

Have you found a true extent for this with exotic calls?

I'd also be a bit surprised that the band would ring 15 extents of which 14 
were treble dodging and one treble-place. Here's to hoping some other 
conventional treble-dodging method was locally known as "Evening Delight".
