Why is there only half a spire?

November - Dad

church with half a spire
The local church trying to brighten up a windy, rainy, cold November evening. Did the local benefactor run out of money and so couldn't complete the spire; was there originally a full spire which was reduced in height on safety grounds; were the stonemasons in competition with those building a nearby church and stopped once they lost the race when the other one was completed? These are all reasons given around the village for this unusually shaped tower and spire, but there seems to be no record of the real reason.
