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 before 1066, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes Doynton as a parish and village, on the river Boyd, near the high road from Bath to Bristol, 4 miles east from Mangotsfield station on the Bristol and Birmingham section of the Midland railway, 6 north from Bath, 5 west from Marshfield, 9 east from Bristol and 5 south from Chipping Sodbury. The church of Holy Trinity is "a building of stone, chiefly Perpendicular in style, and consisting of chancel, nave, north transeptal chapel, north aisle, south porch and an embattled tower on the south side, with one pinnacle only remaining, and containing 5 bells". The nave was rebuilt and enlarged in 1864, under the direction of J.E. Gill, architect, of Bath, when a considerable portion of herring-bone masonry was discovered in the wall of the nave on the south side. The parish records date from 1566.

The living was then a rectory, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and had been held since 1908 by the Rev. Charles Frederick Goddard. A charity of the value of £140 yearly, derived from the rent of farms and dividends, was left by Beloved Wilkes in 1722, in order to maintain, educate and send to the university, a candidate for holy orders. There is also a sum of £90 yearly for the benefit of seven clergymen's widows, arising from the rent of farms.

Tracy Park was then the residence of Charles Samuel Clarke esq. The mansion was originally a small gabled building of Elizabethan style, but has been added to and enlarged by different possessors. The south front is principally in the Italian style. The park, which is bounded by a double bank or raised earthwork, with a hedge on each side and trees in the middle, contains about 180 acres.


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.
