This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1856, and we understand it is still open.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] Holy Trinity Church is on one side of the triangular Village Green. On another side is a pretty Lake and on the side nearest the main road, the War Memorial.[1]

[Image 2] I didn't spot the church on my way through Apperley the first time, so I asked a lady when I reached Odda's Chapel at Deerhurst where it was. “Oh, just by the village green - it's red-brick Victorian” - just a few words, but they sum it up to a ‘T’!

A lovely setting, with a Lake on the other site, but possibly not the most attractive of buildings; unfortunately also, it was locked, so I was unable to see inside. According to Kelly's Directory of Gloucestershire (1897), it was built in 1856 - “a structure of brick in the Byzantine style” - as a chapel-of-ease for Deerhurst. It is also noted there were extensive alterations and additions in 1896.[1]

[Image 3] Mr. Duck was on an urgent mission at this moment in time, swimming at a rate of knots across the lake from the ‘hide’ on the right (actually in the middle of the lake) to the left bank - a mere blur on my photograph.[1]


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
