Holy Trinity, Hulme

Holy Trinity was an Anglican parish church built in Hulme, Manchester in 1841 to a design by George Gilbert Scott and S. Moffat. Construction cost around £18,000 and was funded by Eleanora Atherton,[1] the granddaughter of Edward Byrom, who had himself founded St John's Church, Manchester.[2][3] The church was on Stretford Road, to the east of Hulme town hall.[4]

The hammer-beam roof was decorated with plaster angels painted to resemble wood. The church was considered a good composition by The Builder. Scott used the same design for six other churches.[5] Partially damaged by bombing in World War II, it was demolished in 1953.
