The quadrangle in the foreground is enclosed by cloisters. Above it can be seen the River Wye and to the left of the river is Castle Green and its Nelson's Column Link just about discernible.
Hereford Cathedral Tower

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.
