The spire of St Mary de Castro, Leicester, has been taken down

In September 2012 I visited and photographed St Mary de Castro in Leicester. What I didn't know then was that I was taking my life in my hands.

A year later the church was closed because it was in a dangerous condition. The spire has now been dismantled and repairs are being carried out on the tower beneath. Access to the whole of the Leicester Castle site has been closed off.

You can follow the progress of the project on the church's Save Our Spire Facebook page.
