The Cabell Tomb at Holy Trinity Church
The historic Cabell Tomb, which stands next to Holy Trinity Church, has recently been restored, (grille and coving). Many legends have grown up about the tomb, mostly of very doubtful veracity, but a recently produced brief history can be found here.

Problems with the church roof and with Holy Trinity Church
Unfortunately we are experiencing problems with our church roof being prone to leaks. These have been evident for some time but are now getting worse, and we are exploring how to deal with this issue. A small committee was set up to examine the cause of the problem and to consider possible future action. The committee undertook initial engineering study work, which indicated the current roof technical design is unsuitable, requiring complete renewal of the roof covering to a new specification. Committing to this would require a major financial commitment, and so plans are on hold at present as we see how things develop. Further details will be released as they become clear.
In addition in late 2019 it was found that the top of the walls of the ruin of Holy Trinity Church are unstable. Until repair work can be done, signs have been erected to stop people entering the main part of the ruin, though the tower is safe and so the bells can continue to be rung.
