The 22-second video was uploaded to YouTube by a user called RandomlySet who also filmed this amazing time-lapse clip of Horns Bridge roundabout.

The Crooked Spire – a Grade I listed building – is the largest church in Derbyshire.

There are a number of stories about why the spire is twisted.

One says that a virgin married in the church and the spire turned around to look at the bride.

Legend also has it that a blacksmith from Bolsover made a poor job of shoeing the Devil who lashed out in agony as he passed over Chesterfield and gave the spire a violent kick.

In reality, however, it is believed the inclination was caused by unseasoned wood and heavy lead tiles.
