Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Green, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1HL
This illustrated talk is centred around the unique Religious Census of England held in 1851.
Find out about why the census happened, what the findings for Gosport tell us about religious practice at the time and, importantly why so many churches were built in and around the town at that precise period in history, the year of the Great Exhibition.
This should be of value to those with a historical, population or general interest in Gosport or the local area. Population figures for the county and nationally will be explored and church architecture and history discussed.
Duration approx: 60 minutes
Saturday 14 September: 11:00am
No Booking Needed – Just turn up and enjoy
