One of Dundee's oldest buildings, St Mary's Tower, can be seen in this photograph of the City Churches. The tower, better known as the Old Steeple, dates back to the 15th century.

A devastating fire in 1841 destroyed the earlier churches at the site, but fortunately the Steeple survived unscathed. They were rebuilt and now the Old Steeple and City Churches are one of Dundee's best-known landmarks.

The Old Steeple, is the more popular name given to St Mary's Tower. The tower, as it stands now, was completed in the 1480s. It has had an exciting and turbulent history including being used by Dundonians in a futile seige against General Monk, one of Cromwell's generals, in 1651.

The Old Steeple was refurbished in the late 1990s. It has recently been reopened to the public and is proving to be a very popular attraction to both tourists and locals alike.

St Mary's Tower, or as it is better known, the Old Steeple, is one of the oldest surviving medieval church towers in Scotland. Built in the late 15th century it stands at 156 feet tall and has 232 steps to the top.

It survived the devastating fire which destroyed Dundee's City Churches in 1841. Refurbished in the late 1990s, the Old Steeple has recently been reopened to the public and is proving to be a great success with such organised tours as, "Torture through the Ages".

St Mary's Tower, better known as the Old Steeple, was completed in the 1480s. In its turbulent history the Old Steeple has been fortified by an invading English force in the 16th century, used by the defenders of Dundee as a desperate, unsuccessful, stand against General Monk in 1651 and survived the 1841 fire which devastated the City Churches.
