For whom the bell tolls
The bell tower to St Mary's Church,Walthamstow was open to the public on Saturday. We had a look around. They showed us the bells and found out a little about how they ring them and that you can even put mufflers on them for public funerals. I should imagine that must create a dramatic sound. The bell ringers were quite an interesting bunch, think of that next time you hear bells ringing. We where also lucky enough to check out the view from the tower. I don't think I've seen London from this angle. At present the bells are in need of a refurb with the last refurb taken place in the late 1800s. They're currently looking to raise around £70,000 to get them repaired so if you happen to have that tucked away in the back of your sofa then I'm sure they'll pleased to hear from you.

I'm clocking in a few shifts over at Department S. Although the canteen is subsidised and pretty tasty I'm not all that familiar with this part of town. So whilst I'm here I may as well have a little look around. Above is Syon Park No idea if Vic was there though...
