The Spire of St Marys Church is the iconic symbol of Harrow visible from central London. It has been a homecoming landmark for our whole community for almost 600 years but the lead which protects it is now failing. Will you help us save it?

A structural survey of the Spire was recently carried out, showing that major renovation work is needed. The work will involve stripping the lead tiles from the Spire, checking the condition of the wooden frame and replacing as required. New lead tiles will then be fitted. The work will require significant scaffolding which accounts for a major part of the cost.

The need for this work has been anticipated and planned for many years and was, in fact, a reason why Spirewatch was originally established. We are a registered charity: every penny we raise goes towards the upkeep and restoration of this Grade-1-listed building.

The estimated cost of the Spire renovation project is £440,000 comprising the works described above and a contingency. £180,000 has already been raised; we are now asking for your help to raise the remaining £260,000 to complete the project.
