The bell was cast in 1870. In 1888, it was recast to its present size of 1500 pounds. Because of its immense size, when the cathedral moved to its present location, the small bell tower could not hold the immense bell. The Great Matthew was placed on a bell-cot. On one side of the bell-cot is a plaque from 1899 marking the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the cathedral. ~from wikipedia
