Holy Trinity Church, Exmouth is a Grade II* listed parish church in the Church of England[1] in Exmouth.

History[edit]

The church was built between 1824 and 1825 by John Rolle, 1st Baron Rolle at the cost of £13,000.[2] The chancel was added by Lady Rolle in 1856 and their nephew Mark Rolle commissioned a total re-modelling between 1905 and 1907 by George Halford Fellowes Prynne.

The church is united in a single parish with St Margaret and St Andrew's Church, Littleham, Exmouth.

Organ[edit]

The organ from the original church was expanded in 1878 by H.P. Dicker, and was restored in 1909.[3] This was rebuilt and expanded in 1953 by John Compton. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.[4]
