Hereford Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of St Mary the Virgin and St Ethelbert the King is located near the centre of Hereford. Locating the cathedral is not difficult, pedestrian signs directing you are everywhere.

Floor plan

I counted 168 steps in total from the ground floor entrance in the Lady Chapel up ~100 steps followed by a crosswalk and then more stairs before arriving in the ringing chamber. The room is unlike any other that I have visited with a low oak ceiling and four cast iron pillars.

The tower has a ring of 10 bells with a tenor weighing 33-3-21 in C#. Dove's Guide includes details of the bells at Hereford Cathedral with more information provided by the Hereford Diocesan Guild of bellringers.
