Parish Church of Holy Trinity, Church Road, Ilfracombe - North Devon

Large parish church. Early tower with church, enlarged in the 1320s and again in the C15. Problems with roof and gutters led to water penetration and subsequent damage of internal fabric. Congregation has been in discussions with Historic England and in 2017 was repairing the east end of the roofs with a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant. The tower (with Norman stonework) and west end of the church, including windows with notable Kempe glass, remain in poor condition.
