Now I see more, ianwstokes; it is a church? Exotic.

I was fascinated by the spiral staircase, they also carry on outside. I don’t have a head for heights, but I would love to take a trip up those stairs. I’m not sure if it is possible for visitors to go up them.

Think of the fun you could have with a "slinky" spring on that (provided it could follow the curve).

Now that would be an interesting experiment. Now If you did try it would you walk down backwards below it and give it a nudge every now and then to make sure it did follow the curves, or follow from above giving it gentle kicks.

I love the experiment, but what ís this building Ianwstokes? You can live there???

Hi Trudi, the building is a church. It was built as part of the reconstruction after world war 2. Here's a link to some more information.
