Church of the
Holy Trinity
TL 43 NE 10/101 21.2.67


A pebble rubble church mainly of the C15 but incorporating some C12-C13 remains
in an arch at the east end of the north arcade and in the tower arch. The
north and south aisles and the clerestorey were added in the C15 and the chancel
was rebuilt. The west tower, aisles and nave are all embattled and the tower
has a parapet of flint and stone chequer work. The fittings include a particularly
fine C14 brass on the tomb to John and Joan de la Pole (circa 1375) with 2
figures under a triple canopy. There are also C15 brasses and a C14 recumbent
stone effigy of a woman in a recessed tomb with depressed segmental arches
and battlements. The church is situated in an isolated position on a hill.
Graded for its architectural and historical value. (RCHM 1).
