Titanium

Louth in Lincolnshire is the capital of the Wolds. Within that town is St James Church known for its tall spire, indeed the tallest spire of any medieval church in England, reaching the dizzying heights of 295ft or 90m. Begun in 1501 it took 14 years to complete and has been restored several times since. It was the starting point for the Lincolnshire Rising which was a failed attempt against the suppression of Catholicism by Henry VIII and the supposed burial place of St Herefrith. Here is a view of the church and steeple:

This leads me on to a small picture I found of St James Church which was produced from Titanium and I have copied the explanation of what this means as it appears on the back.
