Other Information

  • Holy Trinity Church is the only medieval church in Coventry that survives today in its original form. In the medieval era it was one of five spires that dominated a very small area of Coventry, the others being St Michael's Church (now the bombed out remains of Coventry Cathedral), and St Mary's, that had three spires and was the only cathedral destroyed in England during the reformation.
  • Under the crossing tower is a Doom Painting, a medieval painting showing death. Lost for hundreds of years, it was restored in 2004, although unfortunately remains somewhat pale due to ageing. It is one of two notable such paintings in the area, the other found at St Mary's in Warwick.
