The unholy mess that is Listed Holy Trinity Church

GRADE 2 LISTED Holy Trinity Church and GRADE 2 LISTEDcurtilage wall viewed from Goldstone Villas

12 May 2013…..If left long enough, to degrade ‘enough’, the Grade 2 Listing of this church will be challenged by whoever owns it at the time and who may  seek to demolish it.   Please click here to view the English Heritage Listing Details.
That time is a long way off, but in the meantime, the surrounding flint wall and once-glorious lawns and grounds are suffering abuse.   Please click here to view the English Heritage Listing details

The grounds are being fly-tipped and used for who knows what  and the entrance pier on one side – which lay for  over a year on the pavement until Enforcement were asked to do something – merely cleared away since the picture showing this was taken last summer.

The fine surrounding  flint walls have been inappropriately and horribly patched with soft and very white lime in various places .

 

All Saints Church in the Drive has some responsibility for the premises but BHCC are loathe to impose a s215 and even if it did, it could not demand (it says) that repairs are up to Listed standard….merely tidied.  This seems very wrong.
