This building is the former Holy Trinity Church which was made redundant in 1977, and since 1982 contains a mix of facilities including a Social Services Day Centre and a Scouts Unit. Built in 1841/2 this was an early work of George Gilbert Scott. It has lancet windows in pairs & triplets, with a west tower with large pinnacles (one a higher stair-turret & trigpoint).

Nothing to really add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that all is in good order.

Not much can be added to tom's eloquent and concise summary of this trig below. The cut benchmark is wearing but still visible, and trees in the church yard have been severely pollarded.

Glad this lovely building and its churchyard are being preserved. Now called Shaftesbury Trinity Centre in view of its change of use.

The 19th century Church of the Holy Trinity stands in the west of the centre of the North Dorset hill top town. The four stage tower is a prominent landmark and has a surviving cut bench mark on its west buttress. It is a Grade II listed building. The church now serves as a day centre, a scout group headquarters and a couple of offices. Shaftesbury has many listed buildings and is of historic interest. A walk around the western hill top spur on which it is built is rewarded with spectacular views. Clockwise from the south east Win Green and Melbury Hill can be seen on the edge of Cranborne Chase; Hambledon Hill and Bulbarrow and the Mid Dorset Downs; Duncliffe Hill rises out of the flat expanse of the Blackmore Vale; Alfred’s Tower stands above woodland in the north and the folds of the edge of the West Wiltshire Downs stretch into the distance. The view down Gold Hill is particularly picturesque.
