The ringing room is reached by climbing a 35 step, concrete, spiral staircase with brick walls. The entrance to the staircase is inside the tower. The room has two tall narrow windows and is spacious with benches, chairs and even two armchairs. There are ten bells and, unusually, all the sallies are a different colour derived from those used to indicate the values of electronic components.
