I like this idea a lot.  I will think after I have moved house.  

I will consider using Littleport and 4ths and 6ths before to get into the tit-tums.  The link method concept is excellent, but perhaps not required for this transition.  

Mark, would you share your other lb 16 link method with the list?

As someone that organises a peal attempt a week, my view is that this isn’t practical or even desirable.  It is good and enjoyable to ring something the band knows well (e.g. Bristol) and focus only on striking, if we add some good (and perhaps unusual) music so much the better.  

Thanks for your thoughts Pip and Mark.
