Tackley, St Nicholas

The parish Church of St Nicholas, Tackley is located southwest of the main body of the village on Church Hill and borders Tackley Park. There is a layby beside the church with parking for a few cars as well as a church car park.

The church is cruciform in layout. Access to the ringing room is from within the church but a little awkward. The first part is a wooden stair, this is followed by a ladder to the edge of the tower and then the short awkward stretch up though a small trapdoor into the ringing room. The room is not very big but does have room for several to sit in addition to those ringing the 6 bells. Two small windows looking over the roof are curtained off. The painted walls make the room quite light. The clock mechanism drives two clock faces.
