Church of the Holy Trinity, Minsterley - Shropshire (UA)

Built as a chapel of Westbury between 1688-9, the church consists of a nave and chancel in one with a west end bellcote and a south porch. The use of classical and baroque elements, the extensive use of brickwork, raking buttresses without offsets and a steeply pitched tiled roof, creates an unusual composition. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2016 to address a range of urgent roof and high level masonry repairs, assorted structural works and renewal of the surface water drainage system. Repair works are due to be completed by the end of 2018.
