After the hanging of St Magnus' bells was complete, the 3 bellhangers
celebrated by popping open a bottle of Champagne.  There is a photo of 2 of
them leaning out of the window at the top of the spire, taking from the top
of the Monument.  The champagne cork is preserved somewhere behind the new
ringing room panelling.
