Random information on the term “Church spire”:
Lincoln Cathedral–or Lincoln Minster, the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln, and sometimes St Mary’s Cathedral–is located in Lincoln, England. It is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Lincoln. Construction commenced in 1072 and continued in several phases throughout the High Middle Ages. Like many of the medieval cathedrals of England, it was built in the Early Gothic style.
The cathedral has been highly regarded by architectural scholars. The Victorian writer John Ruskin declared: “I have always held … that the cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals we have.”
The cathedral is the fourth largest in the UK (in floor area) at around 5,000 square metres (54,000 sq ft), after Liverpool, St Paul’s and York Minster.
Although considered doubtful by some, many historians have claimed Lincoln Cathedral was the tallest building in the world for 238 years (1311–1548). If so, The cathedral was the first building to hold that title after the Great Pyramid of Giza. The central spire collapsed in 1548 and was not rebuilt. Had the central spire remained intact, Lincoln Cathedral would have remained the world’s tallest structure until the completion of the Eiffel Tower in 1889.
