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.
