LOUTH'S SPIRE ; ? .«. ?
HIGHEST IN LINCOLN SHIRE IN SI»LINTS FOR MONTHS
i Lout it's famous spir«-. which claims ! the (list.inet.iun of liyinjr the highest Hag ? in Lincolnshire during Coronation week — it was well over WO feei from i the ground — has been in splint. s for j .some months past. The tower on which ? the spire rests Jias also shown signs -d: | weakness, and it ha:- l»eeii de--ided to j «-t rengt hen it with ;he help of th^!
late:St scientific devices which Mr. Cod- ; fred. the architect, employed success- j fully on Lincoln Cathedral. j Although after the restoration the j tower and spire will look exactly the same, and some wili find it diflicult to say where the £.~i.0W that must be raised for this part of the church alone j has been spent, they will be st ronjrer j than they were when Hrst built over; -1(10 years ago. J The work on the spin* has aroused ! extraordinary interest in the country- '. side, and the response to the appeal has . eome from a wide area. The first con- ' tributor was the inmate of a I'oor Law-j Institution. The last donation has come j from India, where officers of the Lin- ! colnshire Regiment and their wives or- j ganised a fun fair on its behalf. The I Pilgrim Trust has shown its rucogni- ' tion of the importance of the work by ! :i -rant of LT.'.O. ' '
