(1019) The famous crooked spire. Had a 10 minute connection wait at Chesterfield train station, so quickly bagged this one. Will return for this one, and others in this area, next year.

amazing spire. could not find the pa bolt that was lurking here. St Mary and All Saints, the Crooked Spire Church, was built in the late 13th Century and finished around 1360. It’s the largest church in Derbyshire. The Spire stands 228 feet from the ground and leans 9 feet 5 inches from its true centre. The Spire was built straight and the reason that it 'twisted' may be the amount of green timber used during its construction. Then 32 tons of lead tiles were placed on top – enough to bend anyone’s back!

Is the GR correct or has the spire continued to twist since the survey date?

Not sure how to log this - as it like a donkeys hind leg! - I suppose as far as the OS are concerned it is good, as far as the achitect is concerned is has to be damaged, interesting nether the less. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_St_Mary_and_All_Saints,_Chesterfield

St Mary and All Saints. Church on this site since the 1100s, but this one is rather gloomy high victoriana. Extra marks for the fact that the spire is still standing, a modern stained glass window, and best of all (and totally unexpected) a sculpture of Madonna and Child by Peter Eugene Ball in the Lady Chapel.

Familiar landmark; it would look odd if it wasn't twisted. Percy Toplis was one of Chesterfield's less celebrated sons - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percy_Toplis

Seen a few times over the years but I pick the day when I tried and failed to find the 1GL bolt on the north transept. I presume the OS decided the spire was stable before using it, otherwise the condition should be Moved instead of Good.
