Tower Door

Here we are at the door to the tower, it is usually kept locked to prevent visitors interfering with the bells and ropes. For safety reasons, please don't wander up if you find the tower door open. In this Church, the bells are rung from a room within the tower and the spiral staircase has 60 steps, however at some Churches the bells are rung from ground level.

With a ground floor ringing room the door opens out on to the floor of the Church and it possible to see the ringers in action without having to climb any steps.
