Scaling the Heights of Holmfirth’s Clock Tower

Jason joined Andrew Armitage, the clock winder, and local resident Tim Walshaw for a trip to the top of Holmfirth Parish Church’s Clock Tower this weekend.

Jason said, “Despite the steep windy staircases, two ladders and the final narrow doorway, it was well worth the effort to get to the top of the tower. It was a fantastic view from the top but just to see the inner workings of the clock was fascinating. Andrew got me winding it up and the chalk date markings of various servicing are an amazing bit of local history.”
