When we were in Valetta the Siege Bell mechanism was broken and I gather that this is not unusual. We were sorry not to have heard it. Those other big bells from Loughborough went  out after our visit. 
 I presume that Cologne is the heaviest? There is a list of these huge bells. Perhaps someone could supply an address/locator?

 One of our ringers has just been to Malta where she was told that the bell in St Elena’s church is the second heaviest in the world hanging in a tower. Is this correct? She also saw the Siege Bell and has asked what the weight of this is? I suppose I could Google this last question, however I will try Historians first.
