Holy Trinity, Kendal

  • Church Type:
  • Address: Holy Trinity, Kendal

The ancient Saxon church was either demolished or enlarged in 1201 using some red sandstone from the former Roman Fort at Waterbrook. A north aisle was added in the 16th Century creating an exceptionally wide church with a ‘forest of pillars’. Items of interest include an ornate font cover and  a helmet and sword hung high on the north wall probably belonging to Sir Roger Bellingham or as legend has to ‘Robin the Devil’ The Bellingham Chapel contains a corona entitled the ‘Crown of Thorns’  with a tapestry  by Theo Moorman behind the alter. The Romney Chapel commemorates one of this country’s foremost portrait painters.
