Scaffolding at Holy Trinity
A fascinating site visit by the Regeneration Taskforce to Holy Trinity Church in Sunderland - home of the Canny Space project - recently allowed the team to get a new perspective on the church, via the scaffolding erected to undertake urgent works.
The team's plans involve repairing the building and create a new community and commercial events space in Sunderland’s historic quarter. This building is probably the most significant in Sunderland’s early history - not only a church but housed the magistrate’s court, the first public library and the fire service. An intriguing history that must be told.
