The crooked spire is a local and much loved landmark. Even without the crooked spire, St Mary’s is an impressive church. It is big and feels much more like a cathedral than an ‘ordinary parish church’. The inside is impressive with its crossing altar with...More

The visit to the crooked spire church was well worth the money. You get a full history of the area and you also get to go up to view the spire and views from the top! An excellent value for money tourist attraction!
