Did you know that the largest parish church in England is Holy Trinity in Hull? At least the largest by area – the lovely St Nicholas’s in Great Yarmouth claims to be the largest such building. The vast Holy Trinity, now Grade I listed, dates from about 1300. At the other end of the dimensional scale, it contains woodwork including his trademark mice-carvings by Robert ‘Mousey’ Thompson.
