For Plain Minor we can use a grid splice where one bell is the pivot in
every lead, e.g.

Plain Bob
St Clement's
Clewer Slow Course
Double Bob
Maplin Slow course

Similarly if three places are made at every half lead and lead end, we
could have an extent of Treble Dodging Major where one bell rings pivot
leads throughout.
