Trinity Grade II* listed

Trinity was designated a Grade II* Listed building

Illustration of Holy Trinity Church, c1890

Trinity was originally designated a Grade II Listed building in January 1959.

On 30 December 1994 the Church was re-listed by the Department of National Heritage as Grade II* - This means it is a 'particularly important building of more than special interest.'

The listing details on Historic England's website states:

Church. 1829-32. By Thomas Rickman and Hutchinson. Later work c1882 by John Bevan and 1905 by WV Gough. Bath stone ashlar with a slate-roofed nave and leaded aisles. Chancel and aisled nave. Perpendicular Gothic Revival style. Small semi-hexagonal apse with pointed windows, beneath a crenellated, gabled end with angled buttresses and a large Perpendicular E window. The N aisle is 4 bays, with segmental-headed windows between weathered buttresses, and a coped parapet ending with crocketed pinnnacles; at the W end is an arched doorway; 2-light clerestory windows. Similar S elevation. The W front has a pair of crenellated octagonal towers of openwork tracery flanking 3 Tudor-arched doorways, the largest in the middle within a label mould with chamfered reveals and quatrefoils in the spandrels; above is a large 5-light window similar to the E end, and a traceried balustrade with open merlons and a cross finial to the top of the gable. INTERIOR: all fittings have been removed and a floor inserted near the top of the nave arcade. This consists of 4-bay arcade of square piers without capitals and pointed arches, with slender stanchions between for the absent gallery. Flights of stairs lead up either side from the narthex. An early Commissioners' church, now put to community use.
