Yorkshire Wolds Scenes, East Riding Coast & South Yorkshire - Tourist Information and visitor Attractions from March 2012

The wealth of medieval Hull is exemplified by the Church of the Holy Trinity, which is the most magnificent and largest Parish Church in England. What a fine historic place to attend Sunday services and other acts of worship, or indeed a fantastic 'medieval' setting for a music concert. It is partly built of brick - the use of bricks in Hull dates from at least 1303, when several brickyards are known to have existed. For over 700 years the people of Hull have worshipped at Holy Trinity. It is considered by many that Holy Trinity Church, Hull is the largest parish church in England. Holy Trinity Church, Hull was established in 1285 as a chapel of ease to Hessle. Holy Trinity Church, Hull was consecrated in 1425 and made a parish church in 1661. It is one of the earliest examples of the widespread use of brick. What you see in the architecture of Holy Trinity Church, Hull is mainly from ~1300 to ~1530, with restoration work in 1841-1845 by H.F. Lockwood, 1859-1872 by Sir George Gilbert Scott and lastly in 1906 by F.S. Brodrick.
