Contains 3,006 Bristol Surprise and 2,044 Double Norwich Court Bob (N); with 25 changes of method at the leadhead and 31 at the halflead. Blocks X, Y and Z have a similar calling, but starting in a different place. Between them they contain all the courses where 56 are coursing or in 56. Call N if 234 are not all coursing, otherwise call B except for the two halfleads when 234 are in 135 at the halflead or 468 at the leadhead, i.e.
X = B(BN)B*BB(NB)B(BN)*7N*7N*(NB)B(BN)BB*B(NB)
Y = (BN)B*BB(NB)B(BN)*7N*7N*(NB)B(BN)BB*B(NB)B
Z = (BN)BB*B(NB)B(BN)B*BB(NB)B(BN)*7N*7N*(NB)B
Contains all the combinations of 5678 off the front and back that are available in a tenors-together bobs-only peal of Bristol (288 of each) plus two that aren't (after the single).
