It's chancel was added in 1886. Holy Trinity Church is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.

There are sittings for about 450 persons. This church was erected in 1875, to meet the wants of an increasing population. A burial-ground is attached to the church. Rev. Udney John Thomas Allen, M.A., vicar. The vicar and curate of this church also officiate at the old parish church at Dalton-le-Dale.
