Treble Hunting Major

Plain Bob is the natural extension of Doubles and Minor, dodging two places further out each time (3-4 down, 5-6 down, 7-8 down), then two places earlier for the up dodges (7-8 up, 5-6 up, 3-4 up), then making seconds.

Like St Simons Doubles and St Clements Minor, in St Clements Major two bells dodge on the front for the whole of each lead - this is a 5-pull dodge; either count carefully, or just watch for the treble to come back down. The other bells make 3rds between each piece of work, with the dodges coming in the reverse order from Plain Bob. (NB you get both St Simons Triples, which is what you'd expect and St Clements Triples, which is St Clements Minor with two hunt bells!)

Double Norwich is a musical method, with double-dodging front and back. It's a good idea to learn where you pass the treble, to help know when to make 3-4 and 5-6 places. Note also that it is an 8ths place method.

Double Cambridge Cyclic Bob is a new method, named and rung by the Cambridge University Guild. It is symmetrical, but not in the conventional manner.

In Little Bob, the treble only hunts out to 4ths place. The other bells mostly treble bob hunt, but you never dodge in 1-2. You don't dodge in 3-4 either, if you meet the treble. So you get two types of front work; 3-4 down, lead, 3-4 up, or straight in, lead, seconds, lead, straight up to 5-6.

Bastow Little Bob has the treble only going to 2nds. The other bells treble bob hunt, except for missing out the 1-2 dodges. In Kent Little Bob, you do 3-4 places instead of 3-4 dodges, both up and down - good practice for Kent Treble Bob.

Finally, you can ring Grandsire Major - and indeed it used to be quite frequently rung. The extra work from triples is making 4 blows behind between the 6-7 dodges.
