It being the largest doesn't make it particularly historic. Is 
Liverpool Cathedral an historic ring? Only in the short term. What 
about Taylor's first true-harmonic ring? Or the oldest bell still in 
regular use? Or the site of the first ever recorded peal? Or the 
tower with the first octave cast as such? An endless list - maybe we 
should have a rota of pictures :)
