GRANDEUR OF THE CATHEDRAL TOWER
Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England and part of a World Heritage Site. It is the Cathedral of the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, the Primate of All England and religious leader of the Church of England. As well as being the mother church of the Diocese of Canterbury (east Kent) it is the focus for the Anglican Communion. The formal title is the Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of Christ at Canterbury. This central tower of the cathedral was completed in 1496, replacing a Norman tower, tower with a steeple; it is built of brick and faced with stone. The bell at the top is called Bell Hary.
