In a couple of days we ring in the new year. Hope the bells on Monday (or do they ring Tuesday?) are not as loud as the ones below.

Underneath the cast iron clock tower and bell

Not sure my ears have ever recovered from standing underneath the cast iron clock tower at Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron. The museum calls it a chime, but I think it is best described as a dong! If you would like to hear its ‘chime’ then pop across to the aptly named ‘Eight Seconds‘. If you do visit I suggest you turn the volume up loud. That way you will ‘enjoy’ the true experience!
