Spire, St Thomas's Church, N14
Spire, St Thomas's Church, N14
Copper spire of St Thomas's Church, Prince George Avenue, N14. The spire was added to the church when the building was finished in the 1950s, and was originally shiny and copper coloured. The spire and new entrance replaced, the temporary corrugated iron end, which had been there since building had been curtailed with the declaration of War in 1939. Some time in the 1960s, I cannot remember exactly when, the spire blew down in a gale. When it was replaced the copper used in the new panels had been treated so that it didn't tarnish, and to this day the bottom panels are shiny with the upper part of the spire green with verdigris.
