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 nineteenth and twentieth-centuries.
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
