A nearly 150 year old church in South London is opening its tower for one day to let the public climb up and see the views from the top.
The church of St Peter’s Brockley was built in 1866-70 and it’s very distinctive look comes from the walls being made using sea-worn stones from the coast of Kent
Frederick Marrable, a prominent architect who designed Garrick Street and the Garrick Club in Covent Garden, took on the task of designing the Gothic features of the church. The hand-wound clock in the tower was built by Smiths of Clerkenwell, who also created Big Ben at the Houses of Parliament.
As part of the Brockley Max Festival, the church is opening its doors and its tower to visitors.
Like a lot of churches, there are steep ladders to climb to the top of the tower and they are not suitable for very young children, those with mobility issues or if you don’t have a head for heights.
