Church of Holy Trinity, Usworth - Sunderland

Designed by John and Benjamin Green of Newcastle, Holy Trinity church was built in 1831-2. It consists of a wide aisleless nave with a bellcote over the west gable and a chancel with a south lean-to vestry. The slated roof coverings over the nave are showing significant signs that they are reaching the end of their serviceable life, with many areas of slipped and patched slating. There has been some water leakage internally. An unsuccessful funding bid for repairs was submitted in 2017 through the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
