Kendal Parish Church, also known as the Holy Trinity Church due to its dedication to the Holy Trinity, is the Anglican parish church of Kendal, Cumbria, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building.
Visitors to the church are struck by its size and the lightness of the interior. This lightness is due to the unusual construction of five aisles, separated by columns and allowing generous window area.
The nave is 800 years old and the other aisles have been added over the centuries so that, in its heyday, a congregation of 1100 was regularly accommodated.

  • Lovely welcoming church. Widest church in England. I spent a relaxing half hour exploring this delightful church. I didn’t see anyone but enjoyed my time here and left a prayer on the prayer tree...

  • A large and impressive church, dating from the 13th century, in a beautiful location between the high street and the river. I was given a really warm welcome from a volunteer who was obviously very proud of her church and who told me about its history. She also gave me a leaflet which proved very useful as it contains a tour plan and covers all the most interesting features. The church is wide and spacious inside with some lovely Victorian stained glass and quiet chapels containing old family tombs and memorials. Got a strong sense not only of its history but also of a vibrant community. There's a lovely view of the church in its leafy churchyard from the riverside path.
  • Very welcoming, being Phillipsons, we loved seeing the helmet and sword of Robert Phillipson aka Robin the Devil
