Alan reports there was significant interest by all who viewed the bells and the ringing chamber. The camera's were installed in the bells and the ringing chamber. The route for the camera cables was through a rope hole in the ringing chamber floor to the church porch then through the main door to the console at the rear. 4 X 50ft cables were used.
