Dornoch Cathedral weathercock

Black & white photograph of the spire of Dornoch Cathedral showing the weathercock which had blown down and fallen into the top of the clock.

To retrieve the part stuck in the clock we had to bore a hole through the wood and slate some distance above then climb inside tower insert a length of rope tie it to the damaged part and then with a lot of man power we hauled the very heavy part out of the clock and lowered it to the ground the weather cock itself fell to the ground leaving a deep imprint in the grass.

Thank you for your comment explaining the difficulties in retrieving the fallen weathercock - Administrator
