Notes on Church:
The church was built in 1845, in the Neo-Norman style, which had just become fashionable. Like the original and earliest Norman churches it just had a rectangular nave with a bell-turret at the west end, and a small rounded apse at the east end. It stayed the same for over a century, but by the 1950s was not big enough, so in 1957 it was expanded by adding 3 bays on the east end, with a new apse. Single storey extensions were also added on the west end and the north side, and where they joined a tall tower incorporating a porch was added, in the NW corner. More...
Around 2020 the church was given a major refurbishment, including a new roof. The 1950s extension on the North side of the Nave has been replaced with a much larger one. Alterations have also been made to the 1950s West end of the Nave. However, all the Stained Glass Windows are still intact in the church.

Introduction to Stained Glass:In the 1890s, the original apse was fitted with 3 stained glass windows made by James Powell & Sons, which were moved to the new apse in the 1950s. A Morris & Co window was installed in 1923, and then a Goddard & Gibbs window was fitted in the W wall in 1949. Two more seem to have been added in 1953, and their style must have been liked, as all the other original windows were filled with Goddard & Gibbs glass by 1957. In the early 1960s the other 7 plain windows in the new extension were also fitted with Goddard and Gibbs glass, so now Holy Trinity church has a splendid collection of 20 windows by the same maker.
