Prof Holroyd:
" What extents of minor with no adjacent places have been rung? By adjacent places, I mean place notations 12,34,56,1236, etc. It is easily possible to construct such an extent.  E.g. there are bobs-only extents of original.  But I can't think of anything commonly rung that is like this"

People may be interested to see such an extent was recently rung (http://www.campanophile.com/view.aspx?113172)

The method was a rotationally-symmetric treble-place method with cyclic leadheads (4-3-4.3-4.3-4- = 162345). The extent has an especially pleasing 20-part structure, with a whole course cycling through each of the rounds, queens, tittums and reverse rounds courses (though the choice of description is a bit semantic, as due to the beauty of numbers the cycles of queens and tittums are equivalent to queens and reverse queens, or tittums and reverse tittums)

720: (ppppb)*4, b=x at last change of lead
