Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Green, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1HL
If you have only seen the rather stern Victorian-looking red-brick exterior of the church, then the elegance and simplicity of the interior will come as a complete – and delightful – surprise.
This magnificent C of E church was built in 1695 and is situated on the waterfront at Gosport.
The church has probably the most beautiful interior in the south of England, its barrel-arch ceiling serving as the perfect foil for the marble of the high altar, with its 18th-century redos painted by Floyce, and for the soaring pipes and barogue casing of Handel’s famous organ. The nave is dominated by two rows of seven ionic columns, which encase the 14 oak trees that support the roof (don’t ask – just come and see).
Church stewards will be on hand tell you more about the church and its community through the years.
