From The Rev A. Clayton

Sir: I understand that there is a possibility of putting spires back on the three towers of Lincoln Minster with funding from the Millennium Fund.

I have known the cathedral for a long time - looked at it close to, and from afar. Always, something seemed to be missing. Now that I have seen a "mock-up" with the spires replaced, everything falls into place. The strange and daring verticality of the original design falls immediately into proportion. In fact, it comes as near to perfection as anything could.

What a chance to lift the spirit as we go into the next century.

There are other benefits: an increase in tourism, the possibility of incorporating wind-power generators and a boost to local employment.

Sincerely yours,


Harston, Lincolnshire
