HODs - Clock Tower Tours and Bell Ringing Experience

Saturday 10:00 - 12:00 & 14:00 - 1600 and Sunday 14:00 - 16:00

Clock Tower, Oldgate, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 1QF

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 Mayor-Making.

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.

No booking required

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.

Part of the Morpeth Heritage Open Days programme 2019 coordinated by the Greater Morpeth Development Trust
