Chesterfield Twisted Spire. See here for more photos and info.

I took this photo as we drove through Chesterfield on our way home after a weekend in Derbyshire.

A spire that I had never heard of nor seen.... Very unusual and interesting...and a great shot of it, Stewart.

What a cool spire! Love this shot.

That is some spire. I really like the legend explanation of why it's twisted better than the scientific explanation. Thanks for the link and the neat picture.

It seems George and I have complementary perspectives on the same thing. I got a good laugh at the legendary explanation, but I'm glad they explained that it's 32 tons of lead weighing on untreated lumber.

I had never seen that spire before. Marvelous photo!
