(As can be seen: the engineering brick reinforcements have narrowed the walkway such that passage is difficult. The previous picture was taken from about half way along to the right.

The awkwardness of the stance prevented me taking a 180 degree sweep - and I was feeling dizzy. Only later did I realise that it wasn't me - it was the tower moving!)

(I stood here for some time before taking this while waiting for the disturbing effect of the tower's movement to subside.)

Ascending the tower we pass two small doors, the first to the clock, the second to the belfry, giving a rare look inside at the bells.
