Holy Trinity Church, Dartford
Holy Trinity Church, Dartford
On Overy Liberty Road. Has had rich history. In 1415, Henry V held a thanksgiving service here after the Battle of Agincourt. After his death in 1422, Henry's body lay overnight in the church for a requiem mass. Near the altar is the tomb of Sir John Spillman, who founded England's first successful paper mill in Dartford in 1588. There is also a dramatic wall painting of St. George and the Dragon c.1470. It was covered later with whitewash but revealed in 1830's. Important brasses in the church, include that of Richard Martyn and his wife from the 15th century, and of William D'eath, a founder of Dartford Grammar School, dated 1590.
