Holy Trinity Church

The church dates from the 1210s and contains the graves of Shakespeare’s family, especially his own one with its famous inscription; -

‘Good friend for Jesus’s sake forbear
To dig the dust encloséd here:
Blesséd be the man that spares these stones,
And curst be he that moves my bones.’

But the site has been a place of Christian worship since 800AD and is still used. For information about current Services and for a wealth of information on events and music at the church, as well as details about the church itself, visit the Holy Trinity Church Website.
