Broken stonework

Looking at the belfry openings, there the stonework to the openings is in a fairly good condition generally and better than those to the gateways and Ringing Chamber windows. The ornamentation to the north side is by far the least eroded of all of the openings on the Tower. Indeed this should provide a good basis for authentic reproduction if approval is received to replace missing and/or badly decayed crockets, finials, etc. Inevitably some deterioration was seen to the ornamental dripstones.
