    The church is beautiful. Lovely stained glass windows and very peaceful. Trips up the spire are available - I didn't go personally but the rest did - apparently the the steps are very steep and narrow...  more »

    Booked a Spire tour and it was amazing. Even though I found it quite dangerous to go up and down the stairs seeing as there was no hand rail past the ringing room and the stairs were extremely narrow ...  more »

    Chesterfield is a lovely old market town with lots of little alley ways where you will find restaurants, café's and shops. The crooked spire is a splendid sight.  more »

  • I've often past the town of Chesterfield and seen the twisted spire of the church but this was the first time I visited it! It has a very welcome feel to it and includes a gift shop! I was delighted that there was a group of school children being shown round on the day we visited! It is almost cathedral like inside as it is so big. I liked the huge Parish chest and the very old font which is Saxon. The guide is in an easy to read form, well suited for children. So now I know why the spire twisted but I'm not going to tell you because I want you to go in and find out for yourself! 😊
  • Incredible place to visit. The spire, yes it is crooked, is old woodwork that has twisted over the years and has now become an historical building and not only a religious building. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the guided tour is well worth it. The church is a must to visit, if you are in the city, to gain photographs of the spire or just to pray in the tranquil atmosphere of the church
  • A truly lovely church, very interesting steeple and full of history.
  • The church's reputation is well deserved. It's famous for its twisted spire.
  • Very interesting place! The spire is incredible!
