Recently unearthed cine film from the 1890s has revealed the amazing truth behind Burgh St Peter church tower. According to local historian and ecclesiastical architecture expert Professor Edward 'Pikey' Fish, the tower would have been wound up at the beginning of each sailing season and wound down again to mark the onset of winter. Throughout the 18th century the tower was moved by a team of young choirboys, before steam power relieved them of their onerous duty in about 1847. The mechanism was sadly removed and melted down for the war effort in 1914 and the tower was fused into the 'up' position.
