	 One tidy way of doing so would be to ring the first 5 parts of
Holt's 10-part as Grandsire, at the half way call a Grandsire Single,
change the method to New Grandsire and ring the last half, finishing
with another Grandsire Single. The calling of second 5 parts is the
same as the first 5 parts.
Normally, the second half has to be rung with reversed calling, but
here the method is reversed.

X is also Cambridge, and certainly a peal of X alone would be
as a peal of Cambridge (with a snap start and finish).

So I suppose that this is a peal of Cambridge.

Of course, to ring it, you would need some way of announcing the 
"restarts". A convenient way of doing this would be to pretend that X
a different method and introduce some ad hoc name for it.

So this is another example of the description of a peal not matching
way in which it is learnt and rung.

Maybe an honest way to describe it would be spliced Cambridge and
Start Cambridge".

Have there been any peals of spliced Grandsire and New Grandsire?
