Big Ben

By Alex Hall

Big Ben is one big clock tower that has been around for 157 years. Big Ben was built to replace the building that burnt down in its place in 1858. There was a competition to see who's drawing of the new building would win. The person who one the competition was Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. The massive structure stands at 316' but it is tiny compared to the shard that stands at 1004', But Big Ben is worshiped more by Londoners
