The tall spire with is classic herring bone shaped fluted leading soars above the high street in Hemel Hempstead. This is the first thing that anyone notices on any approach to the church. The Spire was made in the early fourteen century and is 130 feet high on top of the tower. At the top of the spire is a guilded weather vane.

 

At the top of the spire is the traditional cock weather vane a top a cross. The close up of the leading shows all the hard work that went into making and restoring the spire.
