ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH
St. Andrew's is Rugby's parish church. The first structure dates to the 13th Century was seems to have been built during the reign of Henry III. The main remnant of this original is the west tower (the short one which looks like a castle) which somehow managed to survive William Butterfield's attentions in the 1870s when the rest of the church was rebuilt and the east tower with its 182 foot spire was added.
The two towers give the Church a rather odd, uneven, look and today, sadly, the whole is threatened by being swamped by modern shopping structures.
