Holy Trinity

When I retired from work in December 2016, I decided that I did not want to sit  at home every day when I was not watching football or cricket and I decided that I would revisit all the churches that I had been to in Colchester a couple of years before. However this progressed and then I tackled Ipswich and Norwich and eventually the numbers seen progressed more and more and by April 2020, it had reachad a total of over 650.

For each seen, I then tried to find a bit of history on the internet so thanks to information from Wikipedia and various church websites, small booklets were produced and to date, over 40 have been completed, so these are now being downloaded onto this website and can be read and printed off if you so wish.
