5/62 Church of the Holy Trinity


Parish church. "1727" incised on keystone over west door, consecrated 1730,
altered in mid-C19. Sandstone, ashlar, plain tiled roof. Provincial Baroque-
style west tower, four-bay gothicised nave. West tower: three stages,
embattled top with pyramidal corner pinnacles. Oeil-de-boeuf to west side
at first stage, another to south side between first and second stages; semi-
circular headed.arch to north in first stage; bold string course separates
top from second stage; top stage has semi-circular headed arches with dropped
keystones, one each to south and north and a round-headed lancet to east and
north., Nave: formerly had four semi-circular headed windows with dropped
keystones to each side (scars visible in south, but not north wall),
replaced in mid-C19 by two 2-light trefoiled windows and two lancets to
south and only two windows to north. Three-light mid-C19 east window. Entry
from west by double early C18 doors each having five fielded panels under
segmental moulded arch with dropped keystone set beneath a cornice supported
by two pilasters. Interior: C19 arch-brace collar trusses supported from
corbels; c18 communion table and contemporary font with hexagonal basin;
moulded stem and base; front C19 pews inscribed with names of important
parochial residences, the rear ones being numbered for poorer persons of
the parish according to conditions specified on board under tower. C18
board also under tower gives list of benefactors towards the building of the
church, eg "Most Noble Ja Duke of Chandos 5.5.0", under a painting of the
church, by Wick of Hereford as it then was. The building is conspicuous
in the landscape, yet sited away from present roads and houses amid fields
which bear the undulations of a deserted, probably medieval village.
