Reasons for trip

Holy Trinity Church is splendid and I ended up with so many photographs I’ve decided to split this review into two parts as it is the only way I can include them all! This covers the north transept, aisles and the Carved Angel. Part 1 covers some history and general description of the church.

In the north transept is the Chapel of Christ the King with a small altar. The lovely stained glass window above has Christ at the centre holding an open book with the symbols alpha and omega. He is surrounded by Angles, apostles, saints and martyrs. St Catherine holding her wheel can be seen at the bottom left corner.

In the south aisle is the Mary and Martha window with Mary listening to Christ while Martha is busty preparing a meal.

The carved wood pulpit has the symbols of the four evangelists. The stone font has symbols of Christ’s passion. Above it is the Baptistry window with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist on the left and Jesus blessing children on the right.

At the back of the north aisle is the ‘carved angel’ which was carved by Handel Edwards of South Glamorgan in the 1970s and took him five years. He was a plasterer by trade and took up woodcarving as a hobby. It has been in Holy Trinity Church since the 1980s.

From a distance I didn’t like the angel but it does need to be seen close to as the individual carvings are exquisite. The wings and body of the angel are carved with 31 discrete scenes of the life of Christ from his nativity to the empty tomb.

This is a very attractive church and well worth visiting. It is open most days from 9-5. There is a coffee morning in the Church Hall on Wednesdays. There is plenty of pay and display parking in the grounds.
