    A massive bell was required and the first attempt(made by John Warner & Sons at Stockton-on-Tees) cracked irreparably. The metal was melted

    down and the bell recast in Whitechapel in 1858.Big Ben first rang across Westminster on 31 May1859. A short time later, in September 1859, Big

    Ben cracked. A lighter hammer was fitted and thebell rotated to present an undamaged section tothe hammer. This is the bell as we hear it today
