Crooked Spire (Chesterfield) ... just refers to it as the Crooked Spire! There is folklore about Devils and virgins but Chesterfield folk aren't really into that sort of thing. I think the most likely explanation is the combination of the heavy lead cladding, unseasoned timbers inside and joiners who were probably most certainly over-seasoned in the many hostelries which surround the church!
