SK3871 : Chesterfield Crooked Spire

taken 11 years ago, near to Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Chesterfield Crooked Spire
Chesterfield Crooked Spire
The spire is both twisted and leaning, twisting 45 degrees and leaning 9 feet 6 inches from its true centre. The leaning characteristic is believed to be the result of the absence of skilled craftsmen (the Black Death had been gone only twelve years prior to the spire's completion), insufficient cross-bracing, and the use of unseasoned timber. Looks great though!
