The bells of ST.PAUL’S will ring for ST. GEORGE on April 23rd

For 1,400 years a St. Paul’s Cathedral has been sitting on the top of Ludgate Hill the highest point in the City of London.    In 1878,  12 bells were cast which are said to form the second largest ring of bells in the world and now hang in the north west tower.  In the south west tower is ‘Great Paul’ the largest bell ever cast in Britain weighing in at 16 and half tons but sadly can no longer be rung.  (The second largest is ‘Great George’ in Liverpool Cathedral). It is from such a commanding position that the sound of these 12 bells will be heard all over the capital and bring great cheer as they ring out to celebrate  ST. GEORGE’S  Day.
