Church of the Holy Trinity, Tithby
A small village church which dates back to the 14th century, but made distinctive by the late 19th century brick upper stage of the tower.

The church consists of aisled nave with chancel, south porch and west tower enclosed by the aisles. The nave and south aisle are 14th century, although the windows in the aisle are 18th century insertions. The north aisle was created in the 19th century.

The distinctive element of the interior is the Georgian furnishing, consisting of box pews on the south side of the church, two-decker pulpit and reading desk, chancel screen and communion rail, and west gallery.

There is an octagonal font, dated 1662, and inscribed with the initials of the churchwardens at the time, TS and RD. This is a re-working of the medieval font which had been cast out during the Commonwealth period.

The church is Listed Grade I.

There are a number of memorials in the churchyard which are Listed Grade II, as two separate listings.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
