"I was wondering whether there was a neat way of expressing the RW Centenary touch as a method or touch of spliced. Of course there will be more than one way to do this, but interestingly the one below achieves it using two regular symmetrical methods and one regular principal"

Indeed, yes it's an interesting property that if you have the mega-tittums coursing order at a half-lead and apply palindromic symmetry, you'll get a method with "regular" (plain bob) leadheads. I pointed this out on an email I sent on 10th February 2006, when, with breathless enthusiasm, I enthused about mega-tittums for the first time.  See <http://www.bellringers.net/pipermail/ringing-theory_bellringers.net/2006-February/001292.html>

There's still so much that can be done here.

If people had a blank canvas for a 24-bell peal, what would you do?  So many options...
