31-JAN-1974 Former Church of the Holy Trinity (now
known as Old Trinity Church)
(Formerly listed as:
CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY)
Anglican church, converted to offices in the late C20. Sited close to the centre of Marlow, associated with a large churchyard. Built in 1852 to the designs of Sir George Gilbert Scott. Decorated Gothic style.
MATERIALS: Knapped flint with freestone dressings, tiled roof. West end bell turret with lead base and shingled spirelet, timber-framed porch.
PLAN: Original plan (judged from exterior access only) of chancel, nave, north aisle, lean-to north east chapel with lean-to north east vestry, south west porch.
EXTERIOR: Largely unaltered. The chancel is buttressed with a four-light Decorated style east window. The north aisle has two-light Decorated style windows with carved dripstone terminals. Former north porch probably removed (gable scar on wall) but moulded inner doorway survives. Two and three-light Decorated style windows to the nave. Good, large, timber-framed south west porch with cusped bargeboards, trefoil-headed fenestration and benches. Moulded inner doorway with carved heads to the dripstone terminals. South east priest's door in shallow lean-to porch flanked by buttresses with a cusped arch. Pretty west end bell turret with trefoil-headed openings below shingled spire with sprocketted eaves.
Limited inspection of interior, north aisle has inserted ceiling and has been converted to offices. Information from High Wycombe Planning Department indicates a mezzanine floor. The open roof, stained glass and painted and stencilled decoration have survived (information from office staff).
SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: An externally well preserved work by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, a leading architect of the Victorian Gothic Revival, which makes an important contribution to the townscape of central Marlow.
SOURCES: Pevsner, Buckinghamshire, 1960, 198.
