This great city overlooking the River Mersey was acknowledged as a worthy settlement by King John in 1207. Overtime it later became known as LIVERPOOL and today it has an astonishing building high up on St.James’s Mount where sits its Cathedral which can be seen by its entire metropolis. This building was based on a designed put forward in 1920 but not completed until 1978 in the presence of The Queen. It is not only the longest cathedral in the world, but has a bell tower that is one of the tallest in the world. As if two superlatives were not enough it has a third – it has the highest and heaviest peal of bells in the world holding 13 known as the Bartlett Bells. These surround the heaviest named ‘GREAT GEORGE’ which at 14.7 tonnes is the third heaviest in the country. This magnificent beast will be rung to celebrate its namesake ST. GEORGE on April 23rd.
