Tower

THE TOWER
Is 85 feet high and there are 111 steps to the flag pole. Recent restoration of the tower has used similar cream blocks but mistakenly some were made pink from the outset. The bell made in 1843 by Thomas Mears at the Whitechapel foundry.
The tower is open to climb on a few days each year, weather permitting! Watch out for the next open day on Saturday 2nd September, when we will be holding the annual Christ Church September Fair, and come and climb the 111 steps to the top, to see the amazing views across Worthing and beyond.

See our pictures taken from the tower on the adjoining page, with grateful thanks to Hazel Butler and Graham Wingfield, who have given permission for them to be published here.

Pictures of the outside and inside workings of the tower, and also of Dr John Bull, who raises the flag up the pole whenever we are marking a Saint’s Day are below:
