Holy Trinity is a lovely Gothic revival building at the heart of a cluster of untouched Victorian
cottages. Built in 1851 under the auspices of the local Talbot family, Holy Trinity was established
in the Tractarian tradition of the Oxford Movement and maintains some of its Anglo-Catholic
style, mostly evident in the ornate decoration of the Sanctuary. The church is usually open on
summer weekends, and you are very welcome to look around.
Services: Apart from Church Festival Services, Holy Trinity normally holds Parish Communion,
Common Worship Order One (Traditional Language) at 9.15 am on Sundays, on a regular
basis. See the Benefice Diary for details.
Location: Holy Trinity is the southernmost church of the Benefice it can be found just over two miles south of
Edenbridge at the centre of the village of Markbeech. Map
Parking: Either on the road, outside the village hall opposite, or in the
further part of the car park of the Kentish Horse public house, behind the
church but only before midday, when the pub opens.
If you would like more information on Holy Trinity, a booklet is available from
inside the church, which is extracted from the "Mark Beech the unknown
village" by Timothy Boyle, and which if you would like to read more about
Markbeech itself, is available from Edenbridge Bookshop.
