I was using complib.org to find Grandsire Triples quarter peals and one of
Complib's offerings was this:
1440 Grandsire Triples from 1440 Stedman Triples by Robert M Kilby
so Complib has used a Stedman Triples composition to give a Grandsire
Triples quarter peal.
If you examine the blue line you can see how it works.
The calls are Stedman calls (single=567, bob=5, plain=7) made at the end
of blocks of six changes, starting counting at the 4th row of a six (like
Stedman), but ringing Grandsire Triples for the rest of the time. A plain
is when 7ths would be made at any time in Grandsire, so is not called.
This then gives a variable hunt composition, with adequate music:
14 567s, 8 657s, 54 crus, 35 4-bell runs (18f,17b), 36 46s, Whittingtons,
