Chapel of the Holy Trinity (Richmond)

The Chapel of the Holy Trinity is one of the historic buildings in the romantic old town of Richmond in Yorkshire.

It stands in the centre of Richmond's sloping, cobbled Market Place.

Looking for all the world like the parish church of the town, it has had, and still has, many uses.

The chapel was built in the early 12th century, as a chapel of ease within the bailey of Richmond Castle. In addition to serving as a church, it has acted as crown court, prison, school, warehouse and even a granary.

Today, part of the building is still used as a church, while another part is the Green Howards Museum, covering weapons, medals and uniforms over a period spanning 300 years. The regiment was founded in 1688.

Built into the chapel is a row of shops, which includes a superb fish and chip restaurant.
