Single or Double Oxford Bob Minor

This is step 5 in the blue pathway.

Single Oxford is often thought of as ’mostly Plain Bob Minimus’. It is a good exercise for ringing ’by the treble’ - bells below the treble plain hunt, and when you cross the treble you do a piece of work straight away.

Double Oxford is the same work above the treble as Single Oxford, and that work is done upside-down below the treble as well. The line has lots of dodges and places and not much plain hunting. It includes ’Yorkshire places’ in 3-4, a piece of work that returns in many Surprise methods. Be careful that you know the place bell starts, or the work at calls can be confusing.
