    Again thanks for Alley for this one. I had never really admired the church for it's beauty, and I have always thought it is rater plain. Turns out it's had most of it's ornate stoneowrk removed! A stone spiral staircase took us top the fantastic set of bells... some of which are simply huge! It was great to get behind the huge clock faces too!! Down a level to the bell ringer's floor. The walls are still covered in wooden plaques from various times the bells were rung to celebrate something or mourne someone. Amazing they have survived, but they are going to rot if they are not put somewhere dry!!
    Alley found a fantastic card from the bell founder warning "On no account leave the bell mouth upwards, Lowering them has caused accidents in the past. At one church the steepelkeeper met his death for this reason":eek:

    Really enjoyed this one, what a top tower!
