HODs – Clock Tower Tours and Bell Ringing Experience
September 21, 2019 - September 22, 2019Free
This is an unusual clock tower as it is not part of a church. The bells ring to celebrate civic events such as the annual Mayormaking.
Open 10:00 – 12:00 & 14:00 – 16:00 on Saturday and 14:00 – 16:00 on Sunday
Built in the early 1600s and containing the oldest original peal of civic bells in Britain, the Clock Tower is one of Morpeth’s landmarks. There will be short tours of the Clock Tower and an opportunity to ring the bells. There is no booking required but at busy times people might have to wait or be asked to come back later.
Leaflets will be available.
Access: There are steep steps at the entrance and further flights of steep steps up to the ringing chamber. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
