Meeting – ‘The Glover’s Needle’ – Tuesday 6th October 2015

September 10th, 2015 by JCope

Our meeting on Tuesday 6th October 2015 at 8pm in St. Saviour’s Church Hall sees David Simons presenting “The Spire of St Andrew’s Church, Worcester, ‘The Glover’s Needle’: its History, Construction and Repairs”. Once the spire crowning the roof of St. Andrew’s Church, the Glover’s Needle is all that remains of this former landmark, since the rest of the church was demolished in the 1940s after being condemned. The Glover’s Needle dates from the mid-18th century, being built to replace a previous spire destroyed in a heavy storm, and is named after the city’s famous glove-making industry.

The meeting will begin with a very short AGM.
