At far centre right is the Hereford Museum and Art Gallery. The road leading away from the end of the roof is King Street. The main road at far upper left is the A49. At the far left horizon are the Brecon Beacons (I think).
Hereford Cathedral Tower :: SO5139

Hereford Cathedral Tower stands 140 feet (50.3m) tall and, from the top, large areas of Herefordshire and parts of Powys & Gwent can be viewed on a clear day. The grid line separating SO5039 and SO5139 passes pretty well through the middle of it. There are 218 steps to the top of the tower, and conducted tours were available on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Summer 2013.

Photos taken from church towers

Written by Brian Robert Marshall

Some churches allow occasional public access to their tower roofs. These provide exceptional opportunities to obtain views that are usually impossible to capture, and sometimes enable one to see buildings that are hidden from view at ground level. They always provide a fascinating and different perspective on otherwise unremarkable places.
