Holy Trinity Church

the sights

The Norman church, with parts that appear to be of earlier origin, is situated on a hilltop to the north of the village and is known as the Holy Trinity, Church of England. When the grounds of the church were landscaped during the 1960s, many graves were lost and the remains were reburied in a communal grave site close to the northern wall of the church. There was much controversy about the disturbing of graves at the time.
A sundial designed by James Harrison, younger brother of John Harrison, stood on the south side of the church near the cenotaph but this has now been removed and replaced by a replica. The church lych gate was removed circa 1960 but there are still lich-stones on the right hand side when entering the church proper. The churchwarden's house that was located immediately to the east of the church path was condemned and demolished at about the same time. The church has a full peal of bells used frequently by local and visiting campanologists.
