    Default From the top of the Anglican Cathedral ?

    A dear Aunty sadly passed away very recently, among her things, her son found this.
    We take it, it's on the top of the Cathedral.

    Aye, they're fixing the giant iron rack which the bells sit on. This iron frame is invisible to all in the Cathedral apart from the bell ringers. Cracking picture that.

    Picture here of the ringing room:

    I worked as a labourer on the Anglican Cathedral in 1978 and 1979. They were hurrying to get in finished for the official opening in 1978. In 1979 I was back laying paving stones on the roadway to the north end. The paving stones came from the old platform of Exchange Station and lay under ashphalt for decades, so they were in perfect condition. Some of them were six by four foot and five or six inches thick.

    A chance to have a nose 'after hours' at the top of the Cathedral and also to walk around the floor of the bell chamber:

    EXchange station closed only in the 1970s. The stones were covered in asphalt on the Exchange platform?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
