One of the Edmund Beckett Denison derived immovable Bentleys of the mid nineteenth century. I’ve already clocked it, but strictly speaking it’s a tower too far.

A result, no doubt, of predictive text and auto-correction. Easily missed, but better to breed what you have tryped.


Big Ben, tower clock, famous for its accuracy and for its massive bell. Strictly speaking, the name refers to only the great hour bell, which weighs 15.1 tons (13.7 metric tons), (rubbish, see below) but it is commonly associated with the whole clock tower at the northern end of the Houses of Parliament, in the London borough of Westminster. The tower itself was formally known as St. Stephen’s Tower until 2012, when it was renamed Elizabeth Tower on the occasion of Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, celebrating 60 years on the British throne. The hands of the clock are 9 and 14 feet (2.7 and 4.3 metres) long, respectively, and the clock tower rises about 320 feet (97.5 metres). Originally in coordination with the Royal Greenwich Observatory, the chimes of Big Ben have been broadcast—with a few interruptions—since 1924 as a daily time signal by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
The above is taken from here:- https://www.britannica.com/topic/Big-Ben-clock-London
Yet another casualty of slipping standards.



However further to the slipping standards as Wikipedia elsewhere reveals: -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Ben

The weight of the bell is actually, they say, different. By failing to differentiate between short tons and imperial tons Britannica have made an error.

Big Ben is the largest of the tower's five bells and weighs 13.5 long tons (13.7 tonnes; 15.1 short tons).[1] It was the largest bell in the United Kingdom for 23 years. The origin of the bell's nickname is open to question; it may be named after Sir Benjamin Hall, who oversaw its installation, or heavyweight boxing champion Benjamin Caunt. Four quarter bells chime at 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour and just before Big Ben tolls on the hour. The clock uses its original Victorian mechanism, but an electric motor can be used as a backup.

It looks like the driver is sitting on the left side of the bus. The shade is also rolled down on that side. propably a tourist coach from continental Europe.
