>> How do I read this?? Any help appreciated!

The quarter peal is in five parts and each part has four course (because there are four lines).

In the first, third and fourth courses of each part you call singles at the second and third lead ends and in the second course at the first and second lead ends.

The only thing that is not specified explicitly is how many leads there are per course but you are given the lead end changes (without the 7 which will be "at home", i.e. in seventh place; the treble, always at the front is also omitted) so you can work it out.

In fact, the first, third and fourth courses have five leads each and the second one has three.  That's 18 leads per part.

18 x 5 (parts) x 14 (changes per lead) = 1260.
