1 December: 213 Greenwich High Road

Are You Listening?

213 Greenwich High Road

Greenwich, SE10 8NB

Historically, bells are rung during Christmas to announce the arrival of the season, to proclaim the birth of Christ. During church services at Christmas, bells are rung to signal the beginning of the mass.

The tradition of bell ringing can be traced back to pagan winter celebrations. During those times, noisemakers were used to scare away evil spirits in the night. Christmas bells have endured throughout the years as a traditional Christmas activity.

Christmas bells can also be a call for attention. This year, amid all the uncertainty of the world, and a growing reluctance to give time to differing viewpoints, we have to ask: Are you listening?

The window is best photographed during the day, but can be viewed at any time.

The window will be ready by 2 p.m. on 1 December.
