Access to the towers

Access at Ilkley:


However, we are still ringing. Access is through the locked contractor’s site fencing, near to the Ilkley traffic lights at the south-eastern corner of the church. You are very welcome to visit us, but please arrive no later than 7.30pm, as otherwise you may not gain access through the fencing.

The door is at the base of the tower facing onto Skipton Road. There are approximately 45 reasonably level stone steps in a fairly tight spiral staircase. The door to the ringing chamber will be closed if we are ringing. If so, please wait until we have stopped, then knock.

Access at Addingham: come in through the main church entrance and turn left into the base of the tower. If the door is locked, there is a doorbell inside the church porch. Once in the base of the tower, there is a short straight steep timber staircase, through the trapdoor. If the trap door is closed (because we are ringing), please wait until we have stopped and then knock on the underneath of the trapdoor.
