Sorry if you've seen this already! I made it for The Londonist a while back but wanted to get it up on my own channel. New video next week! www.joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides The area around Seven Dials has always been connected with low life and bad luck. Indeed the church of ST Giles in the Fields is thus named in order to distinguish it from St Giles in Cripplegate because the area was once fields. This is why they decided to build a leper colony here. During the great plague some of the first burial pits for the victims were dug in the church yard of St Giles. The pub next door used to be called the Resurrection Gate and was a stopping off point for condemned prisoners who were on their way from Newgate prison to Tyburn (along Oxford Street). The church would offer the condemned men a final drink as a good will gesture, but often the convicts' friends would be lurking nearby to stage a rescue attempt and whisk off their friend into the Rookeries, a warren of forbidding passages frequented by prostitutes and criminals.

A video mashup of the 3 towers remaining from a quarter peal day on 29 December, not enough footage to warrant their own video so a combined mix of the 3 towers is the result :-) Closworth: Lowering this OK 5 right on the Dorset border after a successful quarter peal of St Thomas Doubles on the Feast Day of St Thomas Becket. Rehung by Nicholson's in 2000, when they were also tuned, they are rung from a cold, bare gallery. They sound OK for a mixture of (mainly old) bells and are pleasant to ring. Tenor 11-2-23 in F http://dove.cccbr.org.uk/detail.php?searchString=closworth&Submit=+Go+&DoveID=CLOSWORTH http://www.bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=362994 Buckland Newton: A good meaty old-fashioned 6, rehung in 2012 by Nicholson's when they were also tuned! Excerpt from a quarter peal of Hexham S Minor, a good attempt for an end-of-day attempt with a first in method for most, and Nick's 300th QP, but the bells wanted to run away so was a bit clippy in places! http://dove.cccbr.org.uk/detail.php?searchString=newton&Submit=+Go+&DoveID=BUCKLAND+N http://www.bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=362995 Stourton Caundle: A 4 to finish the day off, but unfortunately not in style!! The bells neither sound good nor go well, and a long draught doesn't help! http://dove.cccbr.org.uk/detail.php?searchString=caundle&Submit=+Go+&DoveID=STOURTON+C

Milton (ENGL 220) In the final lecture of the course, the analysis of Samson Agonistes comes to a conclusion with an exploration of the poem's sexual imagery. Milton's choice of subject matter is puzzled over, as are the ethics of his tragic hero, particularly when compared to the heroes of Milton's previous epics. The poem is positioned as a means by which Milton ultimately resolves the poetic, religious, and career-related crises of his earlier poem, "The Passion," and the compelling relationship between the corpus and the poet's biography is revisited one final time. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 02:07 - Chapter 2. Why Did Milton Choose Samson for the Subject of his Final Work? 35:32 - Chapter 3. Final Thoughts on Milton Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: http://open.yale.edu/courses This course was recorded in Fall 2007.
