Holy Trinity Church, Wensley


The church in the village of Wensley in the Yorkshire Dales, built on the site of an 8th century Saxon church, dates back to the mid-13th century and is a Grade I listed building. The tower was added in 1719. It is a 'redundant Anglican church', rarely now used as a place of worship. Instead it is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, a charity whose purpose is to protect historic churches at risk.

  1. I so prefer the square tower, over the steeple.

  3. Your black and white photo suits this old church especially well. I read the material about the Churches Conservation Trust. I can't imagine the government in the USA funding preservation of old churches. We have a strong tradition of separation of church and state that would probably prevent it, though it appears that in the UK there is also a lot of private funding.
