Ours is bigger than yours …

One final note on my trip to London. Whilst standing outside St Paul’s Cathedral my friend supplied us with an interesting little piece of trivia which I have since verified and which just goes to show the capital city doesn’t quite have the biggest and best of everything. So what is it? Well, the dome of St Paul’s is actually only the second largest unsupported dome in Europe. The largest being not St Peter’s Basillica or Florence’s Duomo but a little closer to home in Buxton at the old Cavendish Hospital (now The University of Derby). At the time it was actually the largest in the world. So there you are, a useless snippet for a pub quiz some time.
