Twisted Spire Church

On the train from Coventry to Edinburgh (6 hours) yesterday I spotted the most amazing church. At first I thought the train's window was creating an optical illusion of a twisted spire. Nope, the real thing is twisted!

Construction of the Twisted Spire Church in Chesterfield was completed in 1360. So surprisingly modern. Was it deliberate?Looks like it belongs in Barcelona.
