For some time Ander Holroyd has had a rule-based extent of triples on his website.

All bells plain hunt, with 5ths being made the handstroke after bells 1, 2 or 3 lead.

The plain course is 210 changes, and the extent can be obtained by stitching up the 24 possible courses affecting bells 4,5,6,7:

5040 Original Triples

Omits and doubles (D = 34567) as follows.

54 89  1234567


1  1      7546

   D   1327456

2 (1)     4765


6 part

(1) in parts 1,3,5 only

Chatting with Ander last Friday about possible alternative Dixonoids, we came up with a very appealing possibility:

If all bells plain hunt, but with 3rds made the handstroke after the treble leads (as in Grandsire triples), and with 5ths made the handstroke after bells 2 or 3 lead, the plain course is 420 changes. It's conceptually an elegant "extension" of Dixon's bob minor.
