Here is an idea for a peal of Bristol/Horsleydown Royal on this plan.
Using two 8ths place bobs rather than a single 6ths place bob gets the
length up a bit and in most parts the transitional leads are not bad in
themselves. A mixture of 10ths and 2nds place lead heads can be used to
ensure the full cyclic course is rung 5 leads in the backstroke position 4
leads in the handstroke one. This gives a 4680 as below.

Finally this can be extended to 5000 by replacing the 10ths place lead head
at * with 5 consecutive 2nds place lead heads in any two parts. Parts 7&9
work quite well as you get an extra 4 leads of each of the 534620987 and
