Trinity Church


Trinity Church was built in 1873 to the designs of Robert Rippon Duke, architectural advisor to the Duke of Devonshire, and commonly considered to be the creator of Victorian Buxton. On completion it was said of the church that “For its size it is at once commodious and conveniently arranged. Its acoustic properties are good, and alike in terms of design and detail the edifice reflects credit upon the architect, our townsman, Mr. R.R. Duke”. The church was subsequently extended with a substantial transept in 1883, and a lofty Perpendicular tower in 1906.

Adam Bench has been the Professional Adviser for Trinity Church since 2005. As a result of the findings of the most recent Quinquennial Inspection, Bench Architects have been appointed to prepare proposals for a complete restoration of the tower.
