Church History

Built in 1842 as a chapel to Witton: St. Helen. In 1929 it became a district church for parts of the townships of Castle Northwich and Hartford (previously served by Witton: St. Helen and Hartford: St. John the Baptist). The boundaries of "The Consolidated Chapelry of the Holy Trinity, Northwich" were described in the London Gazette on 26 March 1929:

"I. All that portion of the New Parish (sometime District Chapelry) of Saint Helen, Witton, otherwise Northwich, in the County of Chester and in the Diocese of Chester, which is bounded upon the east by the New Parish of Dane Bridge, upon the south east by the Parish of Davenham, upon the south by the New Parish (sometime District Chapelry) of Saint John, Hartford, all in the said County and Diocese, and upon the remaining sides, that is to say, upon the north west, upon the north and upon the north east, by an imaginary line commencing upon the boundary which divides the said New Parish of Saint John, Hartford, from the said New Parish of Saint Helen, Wiltton, otherwise Northwich, at the centre of the bridge which carries the branch line of railway connecting the Winnington Works with Hartford and Greenbank Station on the Cheshire Lines Railway across Chester Road, and extending thence north eastward along the middle of the said branch line of railway for a distance of 33 chains or thereabouts to the centre of the footpath which leads- from Winnington past the southern side of Verdin Park to Northwich, and extending thence first south eastward and then north eastward along the middle of the said footpath for a distance of 15 chains or thereabouts to the point where it reaches the western side of Castle Street, and extending thence first south eastward to and then south westward along the middle of Castle Street for a distance of 4 chains or thereabouts to its junction with Hayhurst Street, and extending thence south eastward along the middle of Hayhurst Street for a distance of 6| chains or thereabouts to the centre of Navigation Bridge which carries such street across the River Weaver upon the boundary which divides the said New Parish of Saint Helen, Witton, otherwise Northwich, from the said New Parish of Dane Bridge.""
