5/20 Remains of Church of the
- Holy Trinity
Remains of chapel of ease. Probably early C18, with squires' pews of
1754 and 1833 and nave extended c.1788. Red brick walls with some grey
sandstone ashlar dressings. Roofless. 4-bay nave and chancel in one
with later squires' pews to north (of 1754 to north-west and 1833 to north-
east) and later nave extension to west. Chamfered brick plinth, flush
stone quoins and dentil brick eaves cornice. Wooden cross windows.
West doorway and west window. Interior with evidence of former plaster
and round-arched north doorway to 1833 pew with pair of doors, each with
3 beaded flush panels. North-east pew with corner fireplace. Evidence
of former west porch (see holes in brickwork) built in 1858. This was a
chapelry of the Church of Saint Chad in Shrewsbury until 1853. The
nave was extended to accommodate an altar-piece taken from Saint Chad's
Church when the latter collapsed in 1788. The church was replaced by a
new Church of the Holy Trinity (q.v.) in 1887, but was still roofed in the late C19.
The ruined church stands in an overgrown churchyard. D.H.S. Cranage,
