Church of the Holy Trinity, Seghill


Holy Trinity Church is located off Mares Close, to the west of Seghill, and near Seaton Delaval. The church was built in 1849, designed by John and Benjamin Green in a 13th style.[1] It was built at a time when the population of the area had grown rapidly in association with coal mining, but there was only one Anglican church covering the eight townships of the Parish of Earsdon. In contrast 14 Methodist/non-conformist chapels had been established in the parish between 1827 and 1845. In response there were moves to build a new Anglican church; in 1846 Reverend Thomas Henry Bunbury began working with the Carr family (owners of Seghill Colliery) to raise funding for the church.[2] The church underwent a major refurbishment in 1910 and a church hall was built onto the west end of the buildig in 1981. The church is a Grade II listed building.
