Bulcote Holy Trinity Church
Bulcote Holy Trinity Church
A small aisleless and towerless building of 1862. It is not a parish church in its own right, being a chapelry of the parish of Burton Joyce. Usually chapelries were established in hamlets well away from the main place of worship of the parish, but this small church is no more than a mile distant from the mother church of the parish.
Holy Trinity Church, Bulcote
There is no mention of a church at Bulcote in the Domesday Book. It is thought that it was probably founded as a manorial chapel within the parish of Burton Joyce by the Sancta Maria family, who were lords of Bulcote in the thirteenth century. Records tell us that Adam Sancta Maria, who lived here in the first half of that century, gave the advowson (the right to appoint a clergyman to a living) of Holy Trinity Church, together with the lands at Bulcote, to Welbeck Abbey for "the sake of the souls of his first wife, Alice, and his son Bartholomew". It remained with Welbeck until 1349 when (together with Burton Joyce's church) it was surrendered to Shelford Priory in exchange for the advowson of Kelham. It was in documents accompanying this transaction that it was stated "the Vicar shall find at his own costs and charges one able Chaplain to celebrate Divine Service in the Chapel of Bulcote". On the dissolution of the priory in 1536 both churches were appropriated by Sir Michael Stanhope.
