Chesterfield, Holy Trinity

Chesterfield, Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity is the 'other' Anglican church in Chesterfield town centre (after 'the Spire').  The building is early Victorian and lies between two main roads out of town, Sheffield Road and Newbold Road.  Despite seeming tucked away, Holy Trinity is surprisingly large and the grounds are extensive.

George Stephenson, the railway pioneer, is buried in a simple tomb inside the church, and the east window was installed in his memory by his son Robert.  There are many visitors to see the grave and window, and they are sometime confused by the grave of another George Stevenson (note spelling) outside the main door!

Holy Trinity is of course first and foremost a church, and anyone wanting to go it to pray or be quiet is very welcome.  The congregation is very friendly, and you will be assured of a warm welcome.

Please note that cars carrying disabled passengers my park on the church drive.  There are no steps to negotiate.
