Holy Trinity Church
The original parish church has a dedication to the Holy Trinity, and is located near the town centre by the river. It is Norman in origin and it is possible that the chancel was built over the remains of an older church. Several chapels were added on the north side, and the wall in between was opened up later. Nowadays, the chapels form the north aisle. A squint, or hagioscope, near the altar is claimed to be England's longest. The tower and spire were built around 1480, replacing an older one and the south wall was largely rebuilt in the 19th century. The church has a ring of eight bells.
