Pinnacle Falls of St. Swithun’s Church Tower – November 1928

A pinnacle fell off St. Swithun’s church tower half an hour after Evensong ended on Sunday 28th November 1928.

Parishioner Margaret Large’s Grand father had been sitting in the ringers pew where the pinnacle landed inside the church.

The photograph shows two members of the local building firm Brooker Brothers and the then verger of the church on the roof surveying the damage.
