Holy Trinity Goodramgate

Visitors could easily miss the gateway to Holy Trinity, at the end of Lady Row cottages in Goodramgate, the most ancient row of humble domestic buildings in York built in 1316.

About this church

The church itself nestles in a secluded, leafy churchyard, with York Minster towering in the background.

After St Mary Bishophill Junior, it is the oldest medieval church within the city walls of York. Dating from the 13th to 15th century, this at first seems a humble structure, with uneven floors and listing arcades. But the stone is warm and inviting, and the precious stained glass is rich and dignified.

Exceptionally fine box pews, added in the 17th and 18th centuries, crowd round the nave arcades. Holy Trinity has not been rebuilt in modern times and so is a faithful embodiment of the post Reformation church.
