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 bell-cote 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 limited scheme of repairs funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship was completed in 2020 but unconcealed defects necessitated the omission of assorted high level masonry repairs and the installation of a new surface water drainage installation.
