Yes, that was the year when I last rang there and is probably the year
that ringing stopped. The safety concerns about the gallery still exist.
Apparently a structural engineer has ruled that a maximum of eight
people be allowed on it it at any time. No-one can say whether this
includes the collection of old clock weights that are stored there! It
is the strength of the floor joists that is questionable although the
balustrade is also considered too flimsy, with which I agree. There is
certainly plenty of bounce in the floor but it has been there for 100
years or so without anyone falling through it.
