Historic Sydenham spire built by Christopher Wren to be restored

Post by Nic » 19 Nov 2019 15:08

A historic stone church spire built by Sir Christopher Wren which sits in the middle of a Sydenham community is to be restored.

Originally found on top of St Antholin's Church in the City of London, the spire was moved to Round Hill in the 1800s after it was damaged in a storm, where it is now surrounded by a 1960s estate.

Whilst the spire remains structurally sound, its weathervane has become corroded and unstable, while some of its stone features have eroded.

Heritage of London Trust has launched a restoration project, with the support of the estate's property managers, to bring the unique landmark back to its former glory.
