Unique architectural constructions around the world (P.34) - Chesterfield's Crooked Spire (England) : The church tower with strange structures that inspired many folk tales

16-11-2020

(Worldkings.org) St. Mary and all Saints Church was built in the late 13th century. It is the largest church in Derbyshire, built in local stone in a Decorated Gothic style. Altogether it’s a church much like any other in England, unremarkable except for its strangely crooked tower. The 228-foot-high spire leans, spectacularly, nine feet from centre and is visibly twisted in a Tim Burton-esque fashion.
