Has it been necessary to stabilize the tilting, as at Pisa?
4 months ago.
Roger (Grisly) has replied to slgwv
Not that I am aware of, the lean started at the building stage because they attempted to correct it as they went so the tower has a slight curve to it, The majority of windows and doors are still true to vertical.

Excellent light in the low evening sun Roger, I am a huge fan of Bonnie Tyler and would have selected her version of the song, nicely sung by Joe Cocker just the same.

Roger (Grisly) has replied to HappySnapper
Thank you Maurice, the both have a rasp in the voice but Bonnie Tyler has it visually I agree,
Winter sun is one of the joys of cold weather photography

Thank you Jean, It would appear early builders had little knowledge of foundations, this church was built on sand dunes
