Holy Trinity, Berwick

Holy Trinity Church is one of very few churches built during the Commonwealth under Oliver Cromwell. It is of considerable architectural interest. The church was built in 1652 by a London mason, John Young of Blackfriars, and is striking because of its Laudian combination of Gothic and Renaissance features. The lack of tower or spire gives the church an unusual appearance. The interior of Berwick Parish Church with its arcade of five bays on Tuscan columns and rounded arches is surprisingly beautiful. The many Venetian windows are characteristic of the church. The chancel and vestry were added in 1855 and there is a reredos by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
