Do you know this nursery rhyme? It is based on the words that the bells of six famous London churches seem to be saying:
KiddieOK - Oranges and Lemons
A farthing was a pre-decimal coin with the value of one quarter of an "old" [pre-decimal] penny. The farthing was removed from circulation on 31st December 1960. The "penny-farthing" bicycle got its name because its big wheel and little wheel reminded people of a penny and a farthing.
