The first stop on the ascent of the tower was the ringing chamber. Here Mr Monkey examined the pendulum of the clock, locked up so that no one could interfere with it. He couldn't help noticing the bell ropes which came through holes in the ceiling and where hung up out of the way to hooks in the centre of the room. These ropes can be used to ring 12 of the 23 bells in the bell chamber, two floors further up the tower.
