The majority of twin hunt methods probably do fall into the classes
mentioned, but there are still a very substantial number of other methods
that have been rung and named. In fact there are 842 twin hunt methods, 12
triple hunt methods, 3 quadruple hunt methods and 1 quintuple hunt method
that have been named. I have attached a couple of examples to illustrate:
Gorambury Alliance Major (twin hunt) and Shortheath Surprise Royal (triple
hunt). The decision makes it clear that these are classified as Alliance and
Surprise respectively, and are not Little methods.
