Teigh: Holy Trinity
Holy Trinity is the parish church for the tiny village of Teigh (population just over 40). It is set in a lovely location, with views across miles of pasture to the west, and the elegant Georgian Rectory (used by the BBC for its adaptation of Pride and Prejudice) to the east.
The church is highly unusual. The tower is all that remains of the medieval church, following a disastrous fire in the 18th-century. Entering the main body of the church, visitors find a light, airy interior with pews arranged facing each other along the north and south walls, in the style of a college chapel. On the west wall is a triple-decker reading-desk / pulpit with an extraordinary trompe d’oeil window painted onto the wall behind it. Above the altar at the east end is a painting of the Last Supper from the school of Otto van Veen.
Visitors very welcome to join our small but faithful congregation.
