Now that the day is over I can reveal that the signature is that of none other than the famous Guy Fawkes himself, who failed so miserably to do what many of us wished someone would do!!     L0L   L0L

Looks like Dwyforite had the correct answer:

its ff  hard trying to write your name when some b****ard has pulled your fingernails out

I am almost sure it is Westminster Abbey.
The bells at the Abbey were overhauled in 1971. The ring is now made up of ten bells, hung for change ringing, cast in 1971, by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, tuned to the notes: F#, E, D, C#, B, A, G, F#, E and D.

Definitely not, he's too well dressed and wearing specs!
In any case you wouldn't catch me standing by a bell that size in the "ready for ringing" position, could be highly dangerous and does not follow good safety practice. ))*

BROMLEY  by Bow - not Barking!   Thought with your background it would have been a Cathedral at the very least!!    _))*  L0L  _))*  L0L

Question: Where will you find these bells?
Correct answer should be - Church of St Mary-le-Bow    >>>

I now claim the prize!   L0L  L0L
