L is for ladder

A fortnight ago I showed you a view of the roofspace of St George's looking through the walls of the tower from the ringing room. The ringing room is where bell-ringers pull the ropes which hang down from the belfry through the clock room into the ringing room.

A ladder on the wall of the ringing room leads up into the clock room. Getting up there was a movement too far for me I'm afraid.

For a full history of St George's bells, see Old Hyde.

  2. You wouldn't find me going up that ladder either.

  3. It reminds me of a ladder I've seen here for a similar purpose.

  4. You’ve made a great Theme Day post. I'm glad you picked this to share with us.
