St Michael’s Church

Oops. somewhere along the line I missed posting week 28’s photo…not sure how that happened!

So, the Bishops Stortford Camera Club had an opportunity to get to the top of the spire of St Michael’s Church in Bishops Stortford. Getting up there meant a long spiral stone staircasr to the bell ringing area followed by two sets of ordinary ladders which got you up to the bells themselves…I looked at the next, very long, open ladder that led to a narrow beam that had to be crossed to get out of the spire…and came down…there was no way my vertigo was allowing me up any further.

I retraced my steps, shaking, just in time to see the cupboard containing the churches clock workings being opened up and caught this shot – its a miracle it’s sharp I was shaking so much!
