Here's the quarter peal composition (of Major) that David referred to. 
It has 400 runs of 4 or more bells at the front or back, which I think 
is pretty good in a quarter peal length.

The quarter contains several Little methods, so alternate parts have the 
treble hunting from the back and not reaching the front. Actually, as 
far as I remember, when David first described his peal plan it also had 
this feature, but now he is using Alliance methods rather than Little 
methods to get the desired length.

In even-numbered parts, replace every method by its reverse and
swap bobs and singles between the front and the back. Original remains
the same method but its single becomes 1238.

Contains 400 runs of 4 consecutive bells at the front or back.

For 1260 replace 35 leads of Norwich by Bastow.
To avoid losing runs, replace Norwich by Bastow
in the following places.

2a and 2b mean the first and second blocks of
3 leads of Norwich in part 2, and so on.

Keep 1 of the 36 leads as Norwich.

Blocks: 2a,2b,3b,5a,6a,6b,9a,9b,10b,12a,13a,13b
