Off to the tower for su­perb view

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

TAKE ad­van­tage of amaz­ing views across the Spald­ing sky­line when a town church opens the its tower this week­end.

The St Mary and St Ni­cholas church and tower are open from to­mor­row un­til Mon­day (from 10am to 5pm) so vis­i­tors have a rare op­por­tu­nity to climb to the top and ad­mire the scene around them.

The tower is open just once a year, dur­ing the flower pa­rade week­end, be­cause health and safety guide­lines mean stew­ards are re­quired at the top and bot­tom of the stairs.

As they go up the tower, vis­i­tors will also see the church’s eight bells, rung each Sun­day by a ded­i­cated team of bell ringers.

En­try to St Mary and St Ni­cholas Church is free and tower climbers are ad­vised to take a pair of binoc­u­lars to make the most of the views.
