Elliot Mather and The Crooked Spire
We are currently in an unparalleled period in time, with many upsetting and distressing articles filling our newsfeeds. At Elliot Mather, we thought we’d take the time to acknowledge and appreciate our lovely surroundings that we are lucky to have.
As you may be aware, our Chesterfield office is located directly across from The Crooked Spire, a church which is unusual in its shape. Construction of The Crooked Spire began in the late 13th century, and was completed in the early 1360s. Although the church is known as The Crooked Spire, the spire itself is twisted in its appearance. The reason for this was initially believed to be as a result of the skilled craftsmen dying of The Black Death, leaving only unskilled labourers to continue with the construction of the church. However, it is now believed that the distortion of the spire was due to unseasoned wood being used during construction and placing heavy lead tiles on top the wood. Over time, the wood has dried out and the weight of the lead has caused the spire to distort.
The eye catching spire can be seen from our office in Chesterfield, making it a great focal point when looking out of our windows during the day. We are lucky to have such beautiful architecture with interesting historical backgrounds surrounding our workplace.
