Holy Trinity Church (Rothwell)

Holy Trinity Church is the parish church of the Northamptonshire town of Rothwell.

It is situated off the main road and behind the Market Place.

Holy Trinity is a large church, dating from the 13th century, and was originally subservient to Cirencester Abbey. It is built largely of the local ironstone and limestone. There is a massive tower, but it lost its spire in 1660.

Remnants of the earlier Norman church remain in the clerestory.

Beneath the South aisle is an ossuary, containing the bones of 1500 former townspeople of Rothwell. This was discovered in the 18th century, when a gravedigger fell through the floor.
