Most experienced handbell ringers
use a combination of places, grid, lines, and structure (based on where
the treble is or what the first bell of their pair is doing) to ring handbell methods and these
different approaches need to be learnt and practised. A small number of teachers teach and ring solely by place notation and can keep bands right who ring this way. Here are some ideas to introduce place notation ringing to your band. If nothing else, they will help your band ring and keep right later on. For example knowing that a fifths place is made under the treble at the half-lead and the structure this produces makes the advice "half-lead now" an easy way to recover a piece of ringing.
All these right place methods (i.e. places are made at backstroke only). Wrong place methods (e.g. London) are much more difficult to ring by place notation.
