Listing Text

Bordesley B12
Holy Trinity
(formerly listed as
Church of the Holy
SP 0885 NW 53/15 21.1.70
1820-22 by Francis Goodwin. A particularly good Commissioner's church in
a Decorated Perpendicular gothic. Conventional rectangular plan with shallow
canted apse, faced in Bath stone. This body is enlivened by spirelet pinnacled
buttresses diving the windows and with octagonal pinnacled turrets holding
the corners whilst a larger pair flank the effectively recessed full height
entrance bay under the parapeted gable. The soffit has a lrerne pattern
of ribs over the large decorated west window, the tracery of cast iron.
The porch proper is shallow and contained within the recess, a tripartite composition
with an ogee arch to the central doorway with an ornate finial. The east
end above the apse and a cast iron tracery rose. This former church has
an exceptionally good interior with all its fittings and galleries. The coved
ceiling still partially remains but the decoration of a high standard for
the period, has been stripped and a floor inserted.
