Holy Trinity Church

 

Situated in The Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site Holy Trinity Church is set in a beautiful wooded valley in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. It was built thanks to Abraham Darby IV, of the family of ironmasters responsible for the world's first iron bridge, who donated money to the town to construct this church. Built 1850-1854, it stands in a commanding position on Church Road. The church has wonderful stained glass Flemish windows, ten bells in the clock tower which ring regularly, stone carvings of members of the Darby family above the carved pews andan amazing painted ceiling given by Muriel Cope-Darby in memory to her brother Lt. Morris Alfred Alexander Darby who fell in war overseas in 1915. Buried in the churchyard as are the parents of Captain Mathew Webb, first man to swim the English Channel.
