Holy Trinity


Holy Trinity is surrounded by farm land and lies close to the ruined 12th century Millom Castle, once home to the venerable Huddleston family, royalists whose property Cromwell's troops damaged during the Civil War.

About this church

The church was built in the 12th century, extended in the 13th century with a south aisle and enlarged again in the 14th century.

Located within are monuments to the Huddleston family, including a fine 15th century carved alabaster tomb chest of rare beauty and workmanship. It consists of the reclining effigies of a man and a woman, with the representation of six angels on either side, each bearing a scroll.

Although the communion rail contains work from the 1630s and the box pews remain, many of its interior features are Victorian.

There are several interesting stained glass windows and a vesical window. In the churchyard are further monuments to the Huddlestons, including a sundial.
