(n.) The top, or uppermost point, of anything; the summit.
(v. i.) To shoot forth, or up in, or as if in, a spire.

(3) The medieval church spires of rural England are to bring superfast broadband to the remotest of dwellings, with the Church of England offering their use as communication towers.

(5) Behold "The Spire", a 398ft needle penetrating the sky; symbol of Dublin's thrusting modernity (or, cynics suggest, the grip heroin holds on some parts of the city).
(6) It’s a factor, but it wouldn’t be correct to say they died as a consequence of the mismanagement.” Miller also worked at Spire Gatwick Park hospital in Horley, Surrey.
(7) With permissions already granted for many more towers, from the Scalpel to the Can of Ham and a monstrous “Gotham City” mega-block by Make, we can say goodbye to a skyline of individual spires, between which you might occasionally glimpse the sky.
(8) North American marine archaeogastropods are mainly equidimensional but with a few disk-like forms and a very few high-spired ones, marine mesogastropods are mainly high-spired but with disk-like forms, neogastropods high-spired, and relevant euthyneurans sharply bimodal, like the stylommatophorans.
