Leap of Faith!

And a closer view of the man on his way down.

Full of admiration this morning for one of the first of what is expected to be one hundred people who will be abseiling from the 49-metre tower of Bath Abbey to raise money for good causes.

The tower is 49 metres high.

In what definitely can be called a ‘leap of faith’ – though it is very safely controlled – the aim is to raise £20,000 to be split between the Genesis Trust – which supports vulnerable and homeless people – and the Abbey’s Footprint Project.
