Bishop of Burnley abseils 90ft down Chorley church
The Bishop of Burnley has abseiled 90ft down a church in Lancashire for charity.
The Right Reverend Philip North made the descent down the tower of Saint John the Evangelist Church in Whittle-le-Woods, Chorley, earlier.
The Rt Rev North was then followed by members of the congregation to raise funds to renovate the church.
He told BBC Radio Lancashire's Joe Wilson it was "absolutely terrifying as it was a stupid thing to do".
He was installed as the Bishop of Burnley on 14 February after his consecration on 2 February in York Minster.
Changes were made to the ceremony because of his opposition to female bishops.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, said the arrangements were made "for prayer, not politics".
