Description:

Holy Trinity is the smallest former Minster church in the county. It is plain but dignified, an impression that is bolstered by its setting on a gentle hillside with wide views over the Howardian Hills. There is an early 12th-century tower, with a 15th-century upper stage, and inside there are mid-12th-century N and S arcades, an attractive Jacobean screen, a Jacobean pulpit, a painted canvas memorial to William Thornton, d. 1668, a N aisle effigy of an early 14th-century civilian, two further effigies to Robert Thornton, d. 1418, and his wife, two late 17th-early 18th-century brass memorials, and an inscribed 17th-century floor slab.
