Gedling: All Hallows' spire
Gedling: All Hallows' spire
When our art teacher, Mrs Macmillan, expatiated on The Parthenon and its columns, she was able to recommend a cycle or bus ride across the city to see entasis in action in the spire of Gedling church. ("The sides of the spire," wrote Nikolaus Pevsner, "actually have a slight, ingenious entasis. The effect is elegant, almost sensuous, in an Indian way, as it were.") The 180ft steeple (1300-20), the second tallest in Nottinghamshire, is seen from a pedestrian refuge on Arnold Lane on a gloomy September morning.
