So the answer is yes, Durham is indeed the highest to the ringing chamber, and probably to the bells as well.

Subject: [Bell Historians] Highest Ring of Bells Without a Lift

I have asked this question on a Face-ache group and asked for serious answers and no speculation.  It is therefore no surprise that there was an immediate, and wrong, act of speculation!  I have felt the need to ask this elsewhere, to a more cerebral bell group!  😉

Channel 4 have asked me to confirm if Durham Cathedral are the highest ring of bells off the ground, without a lift to get there, in the UK.  Can anyone please give me a definitive answer?

Many thanks
