Fancy buying a church spire? | Leamington Observer

Paul Busby & Jim Savage

Paul told The Observer: “Jim and I rescued the spire in 2011 in a moment of historic architectural empathy and probable financial madness when demolition became inevitable.

“This is a one off item, very rarely available, which hasn’t been cheap to rescue, and will cost a bob or two for us to re-erect for a discerning customer.

“We found lot of the history of the chapel in a time capsule under the foundation stone giving us an insight into life in Edwardian Walsall. We tracked the builders and architects, and the cost of the build which was £3,600.
