Description

1. TRINITY STREET 995 (East Side) Former Church of TL 9925 SE 5/238 the Holy Trinity 24.2.50. I 2. Particularly interesting for its fine pre-Conquest west tower, probably built mid C11, largely in Roman brick, 3 stages, pyramidal tiled roof; the west doorway has a triangular head and the windows are round-headed. This tower was built on to an earlier Church of circa 1000, of which only the west wall remains. The rest of the building is largely C14 and C15, much restored in 1886. There is an interesting monument - a mural alabaster monument to William Gilberd 1544-1603 famous for his researches into electricity. Listing NGR: TL9962625118
