No chance of a straitening then, Dave. Well, not of the spire anyway.Wink

Excellent shot of this wonderful piece of subject matter.

Which reminds me of when Virgin closed its store in Hemel Hempstead. Word got around - It's official, the last virgin has left town...

A third explanation could be that there's a pub next door and the roofer spent as much time in there as on the construction of the spire!

A few blinks ensure that, no, this is not a trick of the light or one's eyes deceiving one. Pisa, eat yer heart out.

Or the tale about the Second Coming due in Walsall - but God couldn't find three wise men and a virgin...

I'd never realised there was a view where something looked straight... But the right side is a true vertical from this angle!

We can take it no other virgins have married in the church then?!! 😁 A few years since I was in Chesterfield, the spire's looking more twisted than ever... 😮 Great viewpoint Dave, like how it's parallel with the tops of the buildings jutting out 👍
