Holy Trinity Walton


Walton is a small village in Somerset not far from Glastonbury. I used to drive through the village on the way there and in doing so passed this church. One day I had the chance to stop off and look around
The Holy Trinity Church






One of the first tings I noticed was this corner stone





You have to go round the south side for the entrance to the church
which is through this porch














Going round to the east end where the chancel is lest you see the bell tower off to the right






Commemoration tablet about the restoration of the church











small access door for the vicar to enter through with a couple of nice headstops





Just a shot showing the sid eand a buttress


Worth a look inside with this simple chancel





I doubt many people bother to look at the floor so will miss these beautiful floor tiles































Couple of the wonderful stained glass windows in the church























Here we look out of the chancel towards the nave where you can see the stone pulpit


 Not one of my better photos as it was taken hand held












Nice stone &marble font






Tomb effigy which is near the font





another of the stained glass windows





View of the nave looking to the chancel
Think this is the chancel window showing the life of Christ

The chancel arch which I think looks very neat






outside again and the churchyard





There is also a newer part to it






Family memorial set in the church wall





Couple of the older headstones you can see in the churchyard
Final look at the church from the south side
Taking part in Inspired Sunday
