The jointly dedicated church of Holy Trinity and St George sits on the East banks of the River Kent on New Road. As can be seen from the following photo, the church can be seen from many parts of Kendal. This photo was taken from Castle Hill, some three quarters of a mile to the South East.
The church has three high arched windows positioned over the doorway, tall pinnacles on the tower, and tall arched windows down the North and South walls. It is a typical Webster church....many of their churches bear the same basic designs. Inside, the church is brilliant white, and together with the multitude of windows, makes for a light and airy interior. What decoration there is, is relatively muted, especially in colour. There are small splashes of pink, mainly the panels in the stepped niches above and behind the altar.
The gallery to the rear of the church is especially spectacular, and is lucky to survive. Most churches in the area seem to have had their galleries removed as congregations dwindled. The survival of the gallery means that the church has managed to provide a meeting room on the ground floor, as well as an interior porch.
The church was built between 1835 and 1837 to designs by George Webster, and was built to replace a tiny chapel based in a building a few yards away. I believe that the following two photos show this building, although I welcome any corrections that anyone cares to make!!!
Many thanks to Father Paul Embery, Parish Priest, for the additional information on the relief.
