Notes on Church:
The church was built in 1845, in the Neo-Norman style, which had just become fashionable. Like the original and earliest Norman churches it just had a rectangular nave with a bell-turret at the west end, and a small rounded apse at the east end. It stayed the same for over a century, but by the 1950s was not big enough, so in 1957 it was expanded by adding 3 bays on the east end, with a new apse. Single storey extensions were also added on the west end and the north side, and where they joined a tall tower incorporating a porch was added, in the NW corner.

Introduction to Stained Glass:In the 1890s, the original apse was fitted with 3 stained glass windows made by James Powell & Sons, which were moved to the new apse in the 1950s. A Morris & Co window was installed in 1923, and then a Goddard & Gibbs window was fitted in the W wall in 1949. Two more seem to have been added in 1953, and their style must have been liked, as all the other original windows were filled with Goddard & Gibbs glass by 1957. In the early 1960s the other 7 plain windows in the new extension were also fitted with Goddard and Gibbs glass, so now Holy Trinity church has a splendid collection of 20 windows by the same maker.
