A church built by Sir Gilbert Scott

Victorian architect Sir George Gilbert Scott built this market-town landmark in the 1840s to serve Halstead’s community west of the River Colne.

Holy Trinity is one of the first examples of a Gothic Revival church in the Early English style. Its tall tower and broach spire form a prominent and handsome feature of this north Essex market town.

The interior, which includes a lofty clerestoried nave, is graceful, and the church is beautifully lit by stained glass of the 19th- and 20th-centuries.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
