  What is Change Ringing

 

 

 

 

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Liverpool, contains the heaviest and highest ringing peal of bells in the world. They were cast by The Whitechapel Bellfoundry in the 1930's. The tenor weighs 82-0-11 ( just over 4 tons, or 4100kgs.) and is in the note of A flat. They are hung in a radial reinforced concrete frame, the only one of its kind. The ring includes a sharp 2nd. In the centre of the ring is the bourdon bell, Great George. This was cast by John Taylor and Son's Ltd, weighs 295 cwt, and is the second heaviest bell in Great Britain. It is rung by a counter weighted clapper and is sounded on special occasions.

 

Ringing generally takes place on the first and third Sundays, but because of changes to the Cathedral calendar, does not always follow this pattern. The link above will take you to the ringing calendar for 2017. Visitors, ringers and non-ringers are welcome. However, because the calendar may be changed, it is best to check with an officer of the Cathedral Guild beforehand that ringing will take place, especially if you are travelling from some distance away.  Access to the tower is via two lifts.

 

Please meet by the first lift. Because of security and health and safety reasons, the tower door will be manned for 15 minutes from the published start time. After this time it will be locked. If you know you are going to be late, please let us know
