Treble Place Minimus

You are advised to double check all methods before ringing them. Please let me know of any errors or omissions. When most of the methods were first named, the Central Council did not recognise them, as the plain course is longer than 24 changes. After the 2017 Central Council Meeting, they were finally "legalised" and many have been rung by Ben Waller and his band, to officially confirm the names.

Thanks to Don Morrison for the diagrams, taken from www.ringing.org.

Treble path 1 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 4 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 - 43 methods

The methods in the first group are those from Chapter 7 of "A Minimus Handbook" by Ross G. W. Robertson, published in 1978. However, note there seem to be a couple of mistakes in this chapter; Robertson lists 45 methods, but the methods numbered 3, 11, 23, 39 and 42 all appear to have the lead head 1234 as written. There are also three methods that aren't given in Robertson's list. Methods in italics are Reverse methods which have not actually been rung and formally named, but just derive their names from being the reverse of another named method.

Note that they have are given with the point of symmetry at the first change, rather than the last. This means that the treble's places are all hand-and-back. The treble starts each method with two more blows in the lead.
