A somewhat convoluted blog article about a multi-extent block of Stedman
Doubles, the "Bromborough Block", has appeared at:

The block is 1440 changes, with features:

- The 5th bell is observation throughout

- The 120 slow sixes in the block begin with each of the 5! possible
changes (same applies for each of 120 quick sixes)

- Consequently, as the article says, "Each time Rounds (or any other
change) appears, it occupies a different row in either a quick six or a
slow six; six times at handstroke and six times at backstroke"

The composition appears (in more conventional form) at
