St Mary and All Saints, Chesterfield

St Mary and All Saints, Chesterfield Church Way, Chesterfield, S40 1HJ . Famous throughout the country for its crooked Spire, which both twists and leans! It stands 228 feet high and leans 9 and a half feet from its true centre (probably because it was built of green oak and then had 32 tons of lead covering it). It is also the largest church in Derbyshire. You can take a trip to the top of the tower
