It must have been a joy to walk up those steps.

I'd say the other way around Gazza. The haphazard nature of the depth and length of each step made going down an adventure of it's own, even sober. I used to glide back up after a tincture or two... :-D

The “ depth and length of each step”?
That would be the “go” and “ rise” my friend! Trust me, I was a staircase manufacturer,

"Go" doesn't even make sense mate? Might as well call it the Fedora or the Sadness... LOL

Every occupation has it's own jargon. Useful shorthand to the initiated and excludes the rest.
My favourite example is Magdalene (as in Mary M.) college being pronounced Maudlin.

Walked up those steps many a time, always preferred coming down though.
