Church of the Holy Trinity, Berkswich/Baswich
The parish, both ecclesiastical and civil, continues to use the alternative spelling of Berkswich, rather than Baswich, which is now the common name for the area.

The church has its origins in the 12th century, but the earliest surviving element is the 13th century chancel arch. The lower part of the tower is 15th century, but the church was largely rebuilt in 1740 when nave, chancel and upper stage of tower were built. This rebuilding, in brick with ashlar dressings, give the church its largely Georgian character. Transepts to the chancel, in matching brick on a stone plinth, were added in 1968.

Interior elements from the 18th century rebuilding include a gallery at the west end, altar rails and three decker pulpit.

The church is Listed Grade II*.

The churchyard includes a significant number of interesting 18th and early 19th century monuments which are Listed Grade II.
