Holy Trinity Church, Coventry - Coventry

This large medieval parish church in the centre of Coventry has a high crossing tower with spire, a chancel with aisles and chapels, transepts, a nave with aisles and a north west chapel. Built primarily in red sandstone with shallow pitched roofs behind crenellated parapets, the lead roof coverings to the Archdeacon's Court and the north transept roofs have reached the end of their life and are in urgent need of renewal. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2017 to assist repairs and re-roofing works are planned to commence in the second half of 2018.
