TitleTrinity Church, Huntingdon
DescriptionWH2/182Exterior view of Trinity Church, Huntingdon. The church stood on the site of the Dolphin Inn, which had been one of the principal inns of Huntingdon since at least the early 18th century. The site was bought by the Trustees of Trinity Church in 1865, the inn pulled down, and the church built between 1867-1868. It was designed by the architect John Tarring, official architenct to the Congregational Building Society,whose son Frederick married Eliza, only daughter of Bateman Brown in Trinity Church in 1871 (see WH3/608). The church cost £12,000 to build, most of the money being raised by Potto Brown and his son Bateman Brown, and the spire was 181 feet high. The builders were Charles Raikes Maile and George Richardson of Huntingdon. George Richardson's ledgerc containing details of the building work on Trinity Church and other buildings in Huntingdon, has recently been deposited in Huntingdonshire Archives (accession 5667). The church was demolished in the 1960s, and a new Trinity Church was built on the Oxmoor Estate
