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.

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.
