Interesting Place - Ipswich

Ipswich, in the UK, is home to the oldest circle of church bells in the world.

(There are five of them, the oldest of which were cast in the 1440s. They are housed in St Lawrence Church where they are known locally as Wolsey's Bells, after Cardinal Wolsey, the adviser to Henry VIII. I wonder if they rang out after he'd had his head chopped off.)
