The nice thing about the Campanophile listing is it defines the Sawston
Extreme implicitly. This is the 'qk' part of the definition.
It is an asymmetric call, the first half being a 'q' - Minster Place Extreme
and the second half a 'k' - Reverse Canterbury Plain, so it looks like this:
'Extreme' means 'the last place is made'. In a Grandsire Extreme, the place
notation at the lead end is 125, not 123. In fact, a GEx looks just like a
New Bob plain lead!
