The Belfry of Saint Riquier Posted July 8, 2015

0

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The belfry (“beffroi” in french) is a structure enclosing bells for ringing as part of building, usually as part of a bell tower or steeple. It can also refer to the entire tower or building, particularly in continental Europe for such a tower attached to a city hall or other civic building.

A belfry encloses the bell chamber, the room in which the bells are housed; its walls are pierced by openings which allow the sound to escape. The openings may be left uncovered but are commonly filled with louvers to prevent rain and snow from entering. There may be a separate room below the bell chamber to house the ringers.
