2. Holy Trinity church is located on the south side of the B4342 at the cross-roads in the village. It was built in 1991 to a minimally Gothic design by Andrew Davies, replacing a corrugated iron church of 1890 and built on much the same plan. It consists of nave and chancel, bellcote, gabled north-east vestry and gabled porch on the west end-wall. Walls are whitewashed under slate roofs, simple narrow windows with pointed arches.
