Hi All

You can't have one without the other.

As regards the Ashtead variation - no I would not think of it as regular..

Thinking about this in terms of the CUP 'usual' definition - non-2nds or 
nths lead-heads in even bell ringing is not usual.

Without looking at it further, the 4ths place variation must have a 
different lead-end from the 6ths place one which is not a property *I* 
associate with regularity.

At least, the people I generally ring with are always a little happier if I 
say the new method I want them to learn is regular.

Best wishes
