Holy Trinity, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, is a parish church in the Church of England in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.

Description[edit]

The church was built between 1838 and 1840 to designs by the Derby architect, Henry Isaac Stevens. The chancel was added in 1866[1] by James Piers St Aubyn.

The church was consecrated by George Davys, Bishop of Peterborough on 13 August 1840. It was reported that:

The Marquess of Hastings gave land for the site. The cost of the building, upwards of 3000l., together with a handsome sum towards an endowment fund, was raised by subscription, chiefly among the inhabitants aided by a grant from the Church Building Society. The church contains upwards of 900 sittings, 600 of which are free and unappropriated.[2]

It is part of the Ashby and Breedon Team Ministry which comprises the following churches:

Organ[edit]

The church contains a 2 manual pipe organ by Brindley & Foster. It appears to date from around 1867 shortly after the chancel was built. A specification of the organ can be found on the British Institute of Organ Studies National Pipe Organ Register at N04546.
