    It also has the highest peel of bells and the largest church bell in the world.
    It's certainly the UK's biggest cathedral.

    Certainly not the tallest - 331 feet compared with Salisbury, 404 feet.

    Agreed. Even St Paul's is taller than us at 366 ft.

    No messing Kev. Whenever I get a feeling that I am too big for my boots, I go down to the Anglican Cathedral. I stand in the middle :- totally Gob Smacked by the size and I feel in awe.
    It certainly brings me down to earth, ,,, before I wander down to the Mabo in Chinatown for the best scran in this City.

    One of my good chums is the Organ Scholor at Liverpool Cathedral and I'm going to go up with him at some point so I can get some good pictures of the organ up there.

    Can I ask Klaatu, is it an offset Litho print ? It's lovely whatever you have done.

    Yeah chippie,I think the photo I used for reference was taken in the 50's

    thanks Lindylou...

    I haven't had them printed properly at all yet steven...The only prints I've had are laser prints, which are OK but not top quality.

    Is it OK if I copy and paste and send them to my relatives? I will not do this without your permission.

    I don't know how you would do that!

    If you were to stand next to the heaviest bell, you'd come up to it like this - so looking down at the largest bell top left of the picture above, that's the same one.

    How did you manage to take that great pic?...I thought the public weren't allowed near the bells.

    I'm one of those noisy bellringers found in church towers across Liverpool. This was during inspection at some point a couple of years ago.

    Default Why Anglican

    I've always been puzzled by the term "Anglican" in the local name for Liverpool Cathedral. I don't know of any other Church of England Cathedral similarly named by the locals. The cathedral itself of course simply calls itself Liverpool Cathedral with no "Anglican" in sight

    http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/
    Anglican means "of the Church of England", and is used to differentiate from the RC Cathedral which is known as the "Metropolitan".
    As Liverpool is a rare example of a city with two cathedrals, that's probably the reason why other cathedrals aren't called "Anglican".

    Curiously, that link you provide doesn't seem to mention the words "Church of England" either.
    Or, if it does, it's not obvious.
