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.
