HODS 2021 – Morpeth Clock Tower

18 September 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Try your hand at bell ringing

Booking required: The tours will run from 10am until 12 noon and 2pm to 3.30pm on the Saturday. Each tour takes 30mins and comprises two groups of six.
Visitors need to book by contacting Val Cowan on 07887 594161 or secretary@morpethbellringers.org.uk. and saying what time they would like to book.

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.

Open 10am – 12noon and 2pm – 4pm

Part of the 2021 Morpeth Heritage Open Days programme coordinated by GMDT
