Holy Trinity church in Hempton
Holy Trinity church in Hempton
Holy Trinity church > Link has its roots and origins in the ruins of ecclesiastical buildings situated about 1 kilometre to the north-east. After the suppression of the monastery in 1537 the church became disused and gradually fell into disrepair. It took 300 years for another church to be built in Hempton, when the Reverend Charles St Denys Moxon obtained a grant of a piece of land on Hempton Green and built a church there, aided by personal friends and a grant from the Incorporated Church Building Society. The architect was John Henry Hakewell, who had been responsible for the large restoration of St Nicholas church in Great Yarmouth in 1847. The church was officially opened in 1856. When in the post war years the building became too small for the growing number of parishioners and plans for an extensions were drawn up by architect JP Chaplin of Norwich. Stones and dressed flints originating from the bombed church of St Michael-at-Thorn in Norwich were purchased and incorporated into the building as were flints from the medieval St Andrew's church in Hempton as well as from St Margaret's at nearby Pudding Norton > Link. The church furnishings were given by various other churches. Above the south aisle chapel altar > Link - it was made from fragments of masonry originating from St Michael's and St Andrew's - hangs a painting which was executed on the old notice board of St Michael's, showing a view of that parish from Thorpe, Norwich, with the railway in the foreground and the church in flames > Link. The (restored) church of St Julian > Link can be seen in the corner at bottom left. This painting is by architect JP Chaplin.
