SE50SW (north side)

1/84 Bell tower at junction
5.6.68 with Glebe Street
(formerly listed as
Bell Tower).


Bell tower. Probably C16 with C20 cupola. Rubble magnesian limestone with
wooden cupola. 2 storeys, single cell. Square lower storey with quoins and
boarded door in south side beneath thin stone lintel. Upper storey becomes
octagonal at half-pyramidal corner stops and is capped by band and offset
courses forming the cupola base. Cupola is open-sided, arcaded, and has
boarded roof with spike finial. Served to call the congregation to the old
parish church situated at a distance from the village centre. The tower may
be of medieval origin or be contemporary with the earlier Warmsworth Hall
situated nearby on site of present hall.
