Holy Trinity Church


The old church had problems with its roof.  The timbers rotted and eventually in 1884 the ceiling showed great cracks, some portions fell down and it had to be closed.
Services were transferred to Hoghton School while the church was rebuilt.
The new church in perpendicular Gothic style was opened in 1887, Henry de Hoghton being the benefactor. 

 The East stained glass window is a memorial to Mr and Mrs Eli Crook, from their children and was placed in the church in 1929.
