Restoration of the turret on top of the tower.

Our Problem: The stonework of the turret.

The turret with its short spire replaced the earlier large spire which was blown down in 1673. It comprises a stone-built, hexagonal structure in the southeast corner of the tower and covers the top of the spiral staircase. It provides access to the lead-covered wooden roof to allow flags to be flown and the star to be erected at Christmas. The Turret, with its wooden shingle-covered spire and surrounding lead guttering, stops water running done the tower steps. Immediately below the Tower roof is the bell chamber with its rare set of ten bells.
