Holy Trinity

Kingston upon Hull,

This awe-inspiring building is over 700 years old, and its 14th-century brickwork is among the most magnificent in England. The beautifully carved 14th-century marble font is where William Wilberforce, MP for Hull and a leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade, was baptised, and the 18th-century rococo altar and reredos are exceptional. What Holy Trinity lacks in medieval stained glass, it more than compensates for in Victorian and 20th-century glass of the highest quality. The fine oak medieval-style carvings on the nave pew ends date from the 1840s and are the work of a local craftsman. They depict mythical creatures including a Green Man and a Lincoln Imp. The pew ends in the chancel are medieval.
