A winning view that one Neil. Looks as if it's had a few repairs over the years. Thumbs up

From an article on the internet about the bells “After a decade of storage at Taylor's foundry, the bells were sold to Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand for the value of the metal and then incorporated into their new ring of 12. These bells are currently in storage in New Zealand following the destruction of the Cathedral by an earthquake in February 2011.”

On 4th Mar 2020 10:34am, Prof said: Were the bells re-hung in Trinity? If so, they probably would not ring at same time as the cathedral’s bells. Edited by member, 4th Mar 2020 7:50 pm

This is to explain why the area called Trinity Church Yard might not always have had that name. Moved from Spicerstoke topic. The south transept of Holy Trinity is a different size to the north and not true to the rest of the church. I know for a fact that it was substantially rebuilt and shortened (early 1800s). Did it lose some alignment at the same time? There's a temptation to think that the early builders got things wonky but from observation it was more likely to be the later repairs that were out of true. As stated before, the original south transept had a narrow roadway running through it. If I mirror the size of the north transept it works out the right size for the roadway (dotted red lines). Attached to the south transept was the Jesus Hall and to the west of that was the vicarage. I'm not sure if the gap between the church and the vicarage (area X) was as wide as later maps suggest and my sketch might need another building width to the north. Was the remaining space garden, courtyard or burial ground? The vicarage itself was a replacement. Might the first have been parallel with Holy Trinity? Extensive burial grounds are a modern phenomenon, not just because of greater populations but because the original church yards were constantly re-dug. Any bones that were unearthed were either returned to the hole or were collected and stored in the charnel house (St Laurence Crypts under St Michael's). Holy Trinity seems to have shared St Michael's burial ground and only moved onto the land to the north side of Priory Row (formerly St Mary's Priory) in the late 1700s Edited by member, 8th Apr 2020 5:14 pm

Does anybody remember a banner at Holy Trinity Church, facing Broadgate, which read “Stand fast in the faith, quit ye like men be strong”? It would have been around 1945 and any information would be much appreciated, and if possible a photo.

Hi 161935, welcome to the forum. Wave I'm sure that there are photos of the sign but I don't know offhand where. I'll keep the request in mind but in the meantime Link to Britain From Above, login to zoom in You can just about make out the words.

A selection of those posted by forum members. If you look at the Broadgate topic, there may be more. These are a different message but they were post or mid war. Edited by member, 27th Dec 2020 2:57 pm

Looking through the newspapers, there is a couple of comments about the quotation on Holy Trinity Church which date it to 1948 Edited by member, 28th Dec 2020 10:12 am

Skidmore who worked in wrought iron did work in St Michael's but his company also made a Victorian screen between Nave and Quire which was placed in Hereford Cathedral. Later re-ordering of the Quire took place and the elaborate screen languished until finally it was removed to the V & A where I understand it holds a prominent place at the entrance to one of the collections there.

161935 There was another sign on the boarded up West window at Holy Trinity during the war: "IT ALL DEPENDS ON ME AND I DEPEND ON GOD." Edited by member, 1st Jan 2021 4:41 pm
