Crooked Spire Chesterfield

The Crooked Spire Virtual Tour - Church of St Mary and All Saints

Better known as the Crooked Spire, Chesterfield parish church is a true icon of Derbyshire with a fascinating history

Construction began during the 13th century and there are some intriguing theories around why the spire warped. I always thought it was because the construction used unseasoned wood however I've recently been is it was the lead covering in the spire heating up more on one side then the other.

This fascinating virtual tour has had over 400,000 views, as of January 2023 It has made it possible for everyone to explore this amazing building and hopefully encouraged people to visit the church and the town of Chesterfield.
