200 quarters at 1 Albany Quadrant

Angela is away this week, but Jenny came over instead and we rang a quarter of spliced Cambridge, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, which was her first of spliced surprise on handbells. It went smoothly with good steady ringing throughout. It was the 200th quarter in the house, which has taken a bit longer than we might have expected - we only rang 6 quarters last year, and only 2 so far this year. Here are some statistics.

  • Timespan: 11 years
  • Number of people involved: 48
  • Number of conductors: 14
  • Number of different titles (Yorkshire, 3-spliced, 4-spliced etc): 47
  • Number of methods rung (including in spliced): 80
  • Leading methods: Plain Bob Major (24), Yorkshire Major (23)
  • Number of "firsts" of any kind: 50
  • Numbers of bells: 40 Minor, 137 Major, 20 Royal, 3 Maximus
  • Number of quarters with all of Simon, Tina, Angela and Jonathan in the band: 91
