We are a friendly and welcoming parish church, committed to serving God and our local community. The present church is the third built in the village. An old ruined chapel, thought to have been sited near Pule Hill, was recorded in 1650.
The next church was built in 1843, on the present site given by Lord Wharncliffe. This church was in a state of partial decay by 1870 and a decision was made to rebuild the whole church. The present church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was consecrated on 8th August 1871.
The church was designed by a the leading Victorian architect, George Edmund Street. Our church is a fine example of the Victorian Gothic style for which he was known. The stained glass windows of the east end, lady chapel and baptistry were all made by John Hardman & Co of King William Street, The Strand.
Inside, there are many things to see including the original font, marble pulpit and marble reredos – all designed by George Edmund Street. Also see lovely stained glass featuring various saints, several memorials, the Lady Chapel and the new Millennium window featuring symbols representing the church calendar.
