The Prisoner, on the morning of his arrival, takes his first tentative steps in the Village. He looks up at the Bell Tower, he thinks he sees a man leaning out from a window looking down at him. He rushes round to the door, climbs the steps in the Bell Tower only to come face to face with a statue! Where the man went we do not know. But he is either light on his feet, becasue the Prisoner would surely have met with the man, or didn't really exist in the first place!
