taken 12 years ago, near to Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Holy Trinity Church, Tewkesbury
Holy Trinity Church, Tewkesbury
Not as lofty as the abbey but still an impressive building. That is because it was built to accommodate the working classes of industrial Oldbury who felt they did not belong to the Abbey. It was built in 1837, partly with a government grant to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon. The architect was Ebenezer Trotman, son of the local Baptist minister, and the great arch was modelled on that in the west front of the Abbey. (Additional information supplied by John Dixon of Tewkesbury Historical Society and from David Verey and Alan Brooks in their 2002 revision of the Gloucestershire volume of Pevsner's "Buildings of England" series.)
