My conclusion is that you must look at what the intention was when 
the bells were installed. Were they meant to be rung full circle or 
not? (This, of course, might be a difficult thing to find out!).

I feel that bells hung for slow swinging are generally NOT meant to 
be rung full circle and are therefore swing chimes.

However, I've rung Richard's Castle full circle - Oh dear, I'm 
confusing myself now!
