It's not often you can touch the very top of a church spire
The church of St. Anne in Oxenhall stands in a commanding position on a spur of high ground and close to the old Gloucester-Hereford Canal. In 1865 the church had fallen into disrepair and only the tower was thought to be worth saving. At this time the church also had a spire but by 1972 that was also considered unsafe and was removed. And here is the topmost section displayed in the churchyard near the lych gate.
