The city of EXETER will hear Cathedral bells on April 23rd

The West Country will be taking part on St. George’s Day with the first cathedral to sign up EXETER.  This amazing building in the heart of this Devon city was built as its first structure by the nephew of William the Conqueror in 1107.  The present cathedral is its third structure and built in the Decorated Gothic style.  This, the last of the stages created, gave us today the magnificence of its vaulted ceiling said to be the longest unbroken, unsupported Gothic vault in the world.  Not just one world record but its bells, all 12 of them are said to be the second heaviest peal (hung for change ringing in its southern tower) in the world.  If ever there was a must see and a must hear then this must surely be high on the list.  Good luck to the ringers.
