Church of the Holy Trinity, Temperance Avenue, Messingham - North Lincolnshire (UA)

The church's external envelope has been largely rebuilt around its medieval core: the west tower in 1784 by Thomas Bell following collapse of the spire, the chancel, nave and aisles in 1817-1818 by Edward Wilson. The short elevations of the south aisle signal that at one time the aisle roof was dual pitched and a box gutter located at the foot of the clerestory. The main roofs are covered in Westmorland slate, laid to diminishing courses; they are leaking and now require renewal. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship grant has been awarded; works are due to complete in 2018.
