"Try this:- 5073 Spliced Maximus and Cinques"

Thanks Roddy.  I recognise the time and skill that has gone into this composition, and I don't doubt there are plenty of enjoyable musical rows and sections.  But at a quick glance I feel it kind of illustrates my point rather than yours.  

Whilst it's good to have the simplicity of uninterrupted nearly-whole courses of Bristol, there doesn't seem to be much of an overall underlying framework...the Stedman sections seem to be of the "chase the row" type, with each course called differently...and having transitions at that place in the six seems a bit clunky. 

Indeed, I'm not sure I understand when you say "It is not possible to ring exactly 11 leads of Bristol between the Stedman as the Bristol must finish with a call at Wrong, putting the tenor into 11ths!".  Why not simply ring an eg 123T call there, which would give a whole course?

Perhaps it's just I don't appreciate Stedman... :-)
