Holy Trinity Church, Matfen

  • Description

    "Holy Trinity Church was erected in 1842 at the sole cost of Sir Edward Blackett and consists of nave, chancel and a tower, which houses three bells. A spire was added in 1860 reputedly as a landmark to help Sir Edward find his way home when hunting. The 150th anniversary of Matfen’s church spire was celebrated with a special service led by the Bishop of Newcastle in June 2010. The style of architecture is Early English with single lancet windows. Features include alabaster reliefs and a modern organ built by Mr. Nigel Church in the 1970s and given by Ursula Lady Blackett."
