Not far away at Rushton, another of Sir Thomas’ unusual buildings can be found, Rushton TRIANGULAR LODGE – well worth a visit.
Within view is the beautiful church of HOLY TRINITY. Its foundation dates from Norman times but the present building is mainly 13th Century. Receiving generous endowments from the powerful Clare family, it is one of the largest parish churches in the country. Entering by the west door one can appreciate the truly impressive dimensions. The Bone Crypt is also remarkable containing the remains of some 1,500 people. The church is open mornings 10.00am to 12 noon, the Bone Crypt can be seen 2.00pm to 4.00pm on Sundays in summer.
