2/2 Ruins of Chapel of the
Holy Trinity
(formerly listed as
Chapel of the Holy
3.5.49 Trinity)

- II*

1524. Associated with Lord Sandys (of the Vyna) in the time of Henry VIII, the
chapel was attached to the south side of the chancel of the Holy Ghost Chapel.
A rectangular plan of 4 bays, 3-sided apse and a hexagonal stair turret at the
south-west corner. What survives is the main part of the south and east walls,
and the Tower; the walling below the cills has gone and the whole is badly
weathered. Externally the fine ashlar has large openings, with 4 central arches
containing signs of cusping at the top of 3 light mullioned windows, thin edge
mouldings lie between large hollows. Between the openings are the remains of
canopied niches, with octagonal bosses, thin panels above a plain slender octa-
gonal attached shaft, this design is repeated at the corners of the stair turret,
which is otherwise plain, with some small plain windows beneath hood-moulds.
The south door, beneath a smaller window, has disappeared. The interior walling
is in red brickwork, English bond.
