Clock room

Also known as the intermediate floor or middle floor, this is usually a room which contains the mechanisms for the tower clock. Bell ringers often use this area to store paraphernalia such as spare stays, spare ropes, flags etc. Bell ropes will usually run through ceiling bosses on the floor and ceiling of the clock room and this can be a point for extra wear on ropes if there is anything rough or sharp on the holes.
