Lambley: Holy Trinity Church

Lambley: Holy Trinity Church

Although it originated in the 11th century, the present Grade I listed church dates from 1470 when it was rebuilt using funds from the will of Lord Ralph Cromwell, who died in 1456. It was described by Pevsner as “one of the few almost entirely perpendicular village churches in Notts, all of a piece and of felicitous proportions…”. The Cromwell family held the manor of Lambley from the Norman Conquest until the 15th century, and inside the church is the tomb of the 6th Lord Cromwell and his wife, the parents of Ralph. On the outer walls numerous grooves can be seen where arrows were sharpened during the middles ages, due to archery being practiced in the churchyard.
