Hedon

St Augustine’s Church Hedon Belfry

During Yorkshire Day in Hedon I climbed the tower at the “King of Holderness” aka St Augustine’s Church right up to the belfry.

The belfry is reached via an extremely narrow spiral staircase – there is only enough room to walk single file up or down. There are two possible stops on the 5-minute journey up the tower: The bell-ringers room where the campanologists conduct their art; and the room which seems to guide the bell ropes to the belfry.

The belfry itself contains the actual bells which apparently according to our enthusiastic guide were installed in the 1600’s.
