Oxford Bob and Other Group B Triples Touches

Short touches of Single Oxford Bob Triples

This page contains a set of touches that will work for group B triples methods, i.e. those twin hunt methods that have the lead end 1275634. The two most likely known methods within this group are Single Oxford Bob Triples and Double Grandsire Triples. All touches up to 112 changes, plus all 126 change touches have been listed. 125, 139, 140, 153, and 154 change touches have been selected for either their music or ease of calling.

The summaries of music in the touches below are correct for the specific touches listed alongside. Rotations of these touches will obviously have different combinations of music.

For these touches the music is explained as follows. 567s means roll-ups at the back of the change. 74s and 46s represent the bells in sixths and sevenths. QKTWB refers to the incidence of Queens, Kings (75312468), Tittums, Whittingtons (12753468), and back-change respectively. The listing of 756s is to indicate the number of leads in which the back three working bells are coursing in the tittums position, a musical characteristic found desirable usually on higher odd numbers of bells. The callings are identified for each lead of the touch. A plain lead is represented by 'p', 's' means a single, and '-' means a bob.
