The Crooked Spire is a unique urban hip and inspiring place to be.
The name is inspired by one of the most unique accidental works of art in the world. The Crooked Spire in Chesterfield is on a church in the middle of the county where Chesterfield Couches were born. The spire was added to the 14th century tower in about 1362. It is both twisted and leaning, twisting 45 degrees and leaning 9 feet 6 inches (2.90 m) from its true centre. The leaning characteristic was suspected to be the result of insufficient cross-bracing, the use of unseasoned timber and by the lead that covers the spire. The lead causes this twisting phenomenon, because when the sun shines during the day the south side of the tower heats up, causing the lead there to expand at a greater rate than that of the north side of the tower, resulting in unequal expansion and contraction. This was compounded by the weight of the lead (approx. 33 tons).

It’s an accidental unique work of art that acts as a reminder to our inner-artisan that we all have something to contribute to the work of art that is life and that at times the most profound works of art are not done with great design but created through the process of time and elements beyond our control.
