SK6142 : Gedling Church Steeple

taken 10 years ago, near to Carlton, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Gedling Church Steeple
Gedling Church Steeple
Pevsner calls this 'One of the most remarkable steeples in Notts, historically, visually and archaeologically.'
It was, unusually, built as an entity between 1300 and 1320 in the Decorated style. The spire forms more than half the full height of the steeple and is particularly notable for the entasis (curvature) applied to correct perspective distortion. This is well seen in this view - it is not distortion from the camera!
