    Default Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Views

    Get a good view from the top of it. Man, those lifts are small though when you go up them.

    Nice one Dave!

    Went up there in 2004 and think you can see blackpool from up there. Can see most of Liverpool from up there anyway.

    't was a little hazy when I went up t'other week, Max. It would be best on a cold, crisp and sunny autumn day I believe.

    Not too cold though. Although alot higher going up the Eifel on a cool day is even cooler when your higher up.

    You still got some clear pics there though.

    It wasn't fun when they were building the new lifts over a few months and us crazy bell ringers

    had to WALK up to the tower. The only fun part about that was coming down, you'd race down the stairs and hope you could stop before you got to the bottom.

    I'm going to have to go up there myself soon - is it still open on Sundays?

    I think the tower's only open for a

    few hours on Sunday. Best give them a ring.
    BTW, I took this pic from the tower quite a few years ago. Notice any changes?

    I hope

    the guys in the clip had earplugs in, that would damage the hearing big time.

    4th November 2006

    Had a trip at 11am this morning, spent an hour wandering around taking snaps, then off to the

    tower with a couple of Germans crammed inside the tiny lift. The top was amazing although tricky to take pics as the slats are not that wide to allow clear

    views. So the camera was slowly sqeezed past them and my hands placed around the slats, being very careful not to drop it!!!!!

    The full set is

    here.

    I tried going up once. I got out the first lift and those tiny corridors, well I swear I felt the building move so I went down asap My

    mates said I wouldn't have enjoyed the 7 flights of stairs in the dark tower, and no I wouldn't have. Maybe one day I'll brave it

    Glad you enjoyed my website! I took all the video's up there on a special day

    when you're given the rare opportunity to look around the bells while they are ringing. It is a very dangerous thing to do - clappers from the bells have

    been known to fly off before now and one embedded itself in the workman's hut that used to be there!

    I've been up church towers since I was about 6

    months old and used to the sound of them but we did a sound measurement a few years back. Ringing chamber came to about 70db and all the 12 bells at full

    chat got it up to about 110db. I think you can start to damage your hearing at about 120db but anything more than a few mins up there and it's like being in

    a nightclub all night! An utterly fantastic sound they make, but very poor accoustics outside the tower make them sound like a fart in a gale. Great George

    (the 14 ton bell) that is hung dead (fixed and doesn't move) is hit by a clapper on the inside - the clapper alone is around 1 ton and it makes an amazing

    sound. On a foggy day outside, you can actually see the fog around the tower move!

    Is it also true that when you get out of the first lift to cross to the second that there is a hole that

    looks downwards from the roof?

    In the early 1970s, the view of Everton was fantastic. It was full of high rises on the hill and looked like a

    mini Manhatten. Literally. I have seen no photos from the top from that period.

    Sort of - ish . When you come out of the first lift, you are over the arches of the 'arms' of the Cathedral - basically where the font is and the shop and the like. From here you walk through a narrow corridor until you come to a set of steps and can either head out on to the side roof or carry on up the stairs. At this point, but very rarely unlocked, you can open the door to view the central space around the gallery but you really do need a good head for heights at this point!!!

    When the lifts were last out of action, if you were fit enough, you could run up the stairs to the base of the tower in one go, rest for a few moments and then run up the second set of steps to the ringing chamber - then collapse
