Hildersham, Holy Trinity Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There is also a octagonal 13th century font, but despite these medieval and Elizabethan items, the primary interest at Hildersham is probably the extraordinary Victorian wall murals in the chancel.
During the 19th century the Goodwin family supplied Hildersham with rectors from 1806-1900. Under the direction of the Goodwins Holy Trinity was gradually restored and rebuilt in the then fashionable Victorian Decorated style. Whether the result is appealling or not is open to individual taste! In 1890 the firm of Clayton & Bell were brought in by Robert Goodwin to paint the chancel, which they did in an ebullient, ornate style, including a striking depiction of the Entry into Jerualem over the vestry door. The interior is lit by vividly coloured Victorian stained glass throughout, lending a very rich colour to the interior.
