Please be aware of the signing in/out procedures to meet with Health and Safety regulations. To keep the system practical, the following system is in place:

  • Ticks against the local ringers are recorded in the attendance book which will now double as a fire register.
  • A local ringer will be responsible for recording the number of visitors so that in the case of a fire we will know the total number of people to account for.

If you are a visitor, please make sure your presence is recorded on arrival! Also please note that if you park in the Close on a Wednesday, you need to get a permit from just inside the tower door!

Please note that building works in the south transept now affect how we access the tower. This is likely to be for several months so check here for updates.

On Wednesday evenings, a volunteer will be on duty at the South door (inner close) from 7.30 to 7.45 after which time the door will be locked. Access is then via the south-west turret staircase which is located at the back of the cathedral to the left of, and immediately below the great west window. If you are not familiar with this route, please ascend with one of the cathedral ringers.

On Sunday, and for other ringing when the cathedral is open (e.g. weddings), please enter the cathedral at the west end and then via the south-west turret stairs. There will be a an inner door which is locked so if you are unfamiliar with these arrangements, please contact the Tower Secretary (Bruce Purvis bp01@mail.com) in advance and he will arrange for you to be met.
