Belfry is a bell-tower, or campanile, usually forming part of a church, but sometimes detached from it, as at Evesham, Berkeley, Chichester Cathedral, Walton, Norfolk, and Ledbury, Herefordshire, etc. At Lapwortti, Warwickshire, the belfry is connected with the church by a covered passage. This term is also applied to the room in the tower in which the bells are hung. At Pembridge, in Herefordshire, there is a detached belfry built entirely of wood, the frame in which the bells are hulng rising at once from the ground, with merely a casing of boards. SEE TOWER.
