Post 13) Christ Church

The medieval Christ Church in Broad Street, City, with its 140 foot spire at the east end of the Church was completely taken down and this new Church with 160 foot west spire was built between 1786 and 1790. This is Walter Ison's 1950 book endpapers digital trace coming together nicely. The tower was symmetrical. Further triangulating of elevation data comes from my telephoto zooms from the top of St Stephens and the university complex, along with site measurements and as always the trusty 1885 Ordnance Survey 1:500 city maps
