Bell Towers

What do you think of bell towers in your town?

There is a new one at Oakland University. I am digesting why I hate how much noise it makes.

Sigh.

Depends on the bells and the bell ringer. Some are quite beautiful. The only thing I uniformly hate is those belfries which have loudspeakers in them playing recorded bells at distortion levels. Awful!

Our local Army post chapel has a Carillon, it's been a sonic landmark for decades.

They are OK, without snipers.

general speaking, I enjoy them. Can;t think of ever not enjoying them.

Nostalgia? I think a comfortableness is being transmitted although the sound itself seldom qualifies.

Don't know why, I just like them.
