Artist's Description

Standing at the west doors which is the main entrance to the church from the street, I decided to look up. I was standing directly underneath the tower of St. Mary Magdalene church, Newark, England. The lower level of the tower dates back to the 13th century, around 1220, with the upper levels of the tower and the spire added on in the 14th century. The upper levels are above the ceiling you see here, and there is a trap door in that ceiling that allows the bells to be lowered to the ground for maintenance. Above here are the clock rooms and the bell ringers room, the bell house, and finally the spire and exit onto the terrace. From the top of the tower you have a wonderful view of the town, the market place, and Newark Castle. You can see for miles. I hope to upload some more of those pictures some time. Back down at the bottom, the impressive Great West Window was originally inserted around 1466. Paid for in part by Alexander Lowe, who left hundreds of pounds in his will for this purpose. However, the window was replaced in 1887 and dedicated to the memory of Rev JG Bussell, Vicar of the parish from 1835 to 1874. The view up is impressive, full of colour as the sun sets in the evenings. High above the heads of those who enter through the west door, the life and activities of the church continue to ring out to the community that it is set into!

This is a HDR image using four bracketed shots, and using Photomatix Pro for Mac to put them together, making adjustment of tone and brightness in detail enhancer.
