Great little video showing the old school scaffolding and the nail biting views from 400+ feet from the top of Salisbury Cathedral in the 1950’s.

Amazingly the video also shows us the old original winch and the original oak scaffold boards used to build the cathedral in the 13th century.

According to Wikipedia – The cathedral has the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom (123m/404 ft). Visitors can take the “Tower Tour” where the interior of the hollow spire, with its ancient wood scaffolding, can be viewed.
