Secret St. Peter’s – A Photographic View Inside the 18th Century Tower

St. Peter’s tower is in need of restoration and is unsafe for visitors, but you can take an exclusive look inside through our photographic exhibition – inside the church, and online.

Our amateur photographic exhibition will show you the interior of the long-hidden tower area. From the original 18th Century wooden staircase, entrance onto the gallery, the second floor where you can see into the vast roofspace, and up to the clock chamber where the Whitehurst clock was once housed. There are also a couple of views taken from the 40 metre high cherry picker used to conduct urgent repairs to the dome (an exhibition/book of the rest of these pictures is also planned in the near future).

Situated inside the church, you can view the exhibition and the main areas of the church, pause for a moment of peace/prayer and enjoy a hot/cold drink in our cafe area. The church is open Saturday 12th September 12pm – 4pm. The display is now available here.

(Please note – there is no physical access to the tower, view is the exhibition only!)
