History of Holy Trinity Church

The Church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1840 as a Chapel of Ease to St Andrew's Church by the Revd John Hatchard. It was to seat 1000 people.

The 'Chapel' became a Parish Church in 1842 and became the 'Mother Church' of St Saviour's on Lambhay Hill.

The Church was badly damaged during the Blitz of 1941 and was later totally demolished.
