It was a chance to see Wisbech from a different view as well as discover more about the town’s historic church.
St Peter & St Paul, in Love Lane, held its tower open day last Saturday (September 14) as part of Heritage Open Days.
Those that were brave enough to climb the 68 steps to the belfry were rewarded with sunny views across Wisbech.
Visitors were keen to discover more about the Norman church building and its 900 years of history.
The bellringers were also available to welcome residents and give children the chance at ringng the bells and discover more about the art of campanology.
