The current tower at the cathedral is from 1500. I found a reference
to a clock tower there in 1292. Mechanical clock? Were there some sort
of chiming hammers attached to a clock
mechanism that early, or would people have been ringing the bell(s)
based on the clock time?
Any information would be appreciated.
