The city was founded by The Romans in 71AD and was known as ‘Eboracum’, situated strategically at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss and became the Roman capital of the interior. Today, this city, now known as YORK, is still a capital of the interior and also of its county. It has many historic features but none so important nor influential than its magnificent Minster. A church had been established on this site since the 4th Century and over the years it has been rebuilt after fires, wars and invasions. The sublime and magisterial building it is today brings visitors from all over the world to admire its architecture including its towers. The North West holds the bell ‘Great Peter’ the fourth largest in the country weighing just over 216 cwt. In the South West there are 14 bells that are hung for ‘change ringing’ and they will be making a thundering good sound across the country as they ring out for ST.GEORGE, April 23rd.
