On top of the main bell in the belfry in Todmorden Unitarian Church
England

Inside the working belfry (bell chamber), halfway up the steeple of the community-run Todmorden Unitarian Church. One of those wonderfully English traditions, change ringing involves playing a sequence of different tuned bells, such as these here, to play a complex pattern of sounds. The dedicated team of local bell ringers ensures this renovated set is regularly used. Hearing them peal over the town on a spring evening is a real pleasure.


The clock on the floor below triggers an hourly chime on one bell; being in the bell chamber you're reminded just how incredibly loud these bells are. Cover your ears! And getting there is definitely not a climb to do if you're uncomfortable with heights or narrow spaces; it starts with a narrow stone spiral staircase, then several increasingly narrow metal ladders and tiny apertures to squeeze through.
