I'm glad they are restoring it!

I am always happy to see these places being restored. I think I am becoming very English, as the things that are important to me are only appreciated by the English and not all the others who come to my site. (the rubbish being a classic example)> I suppose like everything, you have to be there.

Always happy to see repairs done to our old buildings and not left to decay.

Come take a trip with me on the London Eye.

I am a member of st George's chruch and a bell ringer and go up the tower on a regular basis. We arent alowed to ring at the moment but it should be finished by the end of september. Just in time for a wedding.

The whole tower is being repointed and the clock decorated.

The scaffolding itself is a work of art on top of the older work of art. The shape and symmetry remind me of a pagoda.

Restoration works might not be very pleasant when you want to take some shots but it's so nice knowing historical sites are being taken care of! Amazing trees on the first shot!
