This is the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon. It is the site where William Shakespeare and close members of his family are burried inside.

It is in Old Town near a bank of the River Avon.

2010 is the 800th anniversary of the present building which dates to 1210.

Information from a leaflet I was given after paying £1.50 to go to the section to view Shakespeare’s Grave.

There has been a church on this site since at least 713 when a Saxon monastery was built here. The present building dates from 1210, with the oldest sections being the tower, transepts and nave pillars. The North and South aisles were added in the 1300s and the Chancel in the late 1400s.

The Church of the Holy Trinity is a Grade I listed building.

Church; collegiate status from 1415 to 1547. Anglo-Saxon
origins; possibly C12 work in early C13 tower, remodelled in
early C14; early C13 transepts; early to mid C14 nave arcades
and aisles; 1580s chancel; 1590s nave clerestory and north
porch; 1763 spire by W Hiorn of Warwick; restored by William
Butterfield, 1850s; by Bodley and Garner, 1888-92 and 1898.

As I was here, thought I might as well go inside and see Shakespeare’s Grave.

This is the High Alter in the church.

On the left is a bust of William Shakespeare dating to 1623.

By His Wounds Music Video Jesus Christ Powerful 4 alter call

Very touching, very emotiona music video that I made using clips from The Passion Of Christ movie and the song By His Wounds by Mac Powell and Company. I’m just a crazy Flemingsburg, Kentucky preacherboy and I love Jesus Christ with all my heart. I invite you to watch the video. If you are not saved and you feel a tug at your heart, you can ask Jesus into your heart or contact me and I’ll pray with you!! This video is also a good video to use with an alter call. I go to different places to preach and to do Youth Services as well and this will be one video I will take with me everywhere I go. God Bless You All, please share this with everyone you know, saved and unsaved. Feel free to comment and rate it if you want, but the ultimate goal is to reach out and see souls saved! Thanks for reading and watching!
