The Old Grey One

I have showed you several photos from high up at the Martinitoren or Martin's Tower, so it's about time to have a look standing on the ground. This tower is the highest church steeple in the city of Groningen, and the bell tower of the Martinikerk (Martin's Church). The carillon within the tower contains 62 bells.
The citizens of Groningen call their tower d'Olle Grieze, meaning the old grey one in the local dialect.
