Holy Trinity and St Mary

 

Awarded £3,000 for roof repairs to the east ambulatory.

The present church was once the chancel, crossing and transepts of the medieval Cistercian monastery whose domestic buildings and chapter house can still be traced. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the building was saved from total destruction and was restored in the 1630s by John, Viscount Scudamore. It is a rare, surviving example of a Laudian Church. Among the many points to note are the lovely bosses, saved from the medieval roof because the King’s Commissioners were sympathetic, the original altar top, the carved screen, the newly restored stained glass and the wall texts.
