Transcript TRINITY CHURCH AND NEW WELLS. This church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and endowed with £1350 private benefactions, was erected under authority of an act of 1 and 2 of William IV. c. 38. It was commenced in 1838, and completed in 1840, the foundation-stone being laid by the lord bishop of the diocese on the 9th of August in the former year. The building, which is computed to have cost about £4000, and estimated to contain 1000 persons,—one- third of whom have gratuitous accommodation, or at a small rent,—may be described as a neat Gothic structure, free from meretricious ornament, and worthy of admiration from the prevailing simplicity and taste displayed in its general design. The original plan exhibited a spire, which was finally abandoned because of the expense. In conformity with the act referred to, the patronage is vested in five trustees, who present whenever there is a vacancy. The under-mentioned gentlemen were duly appointed patrons :— The Rev. Jocelyn Willey. The Rev. O. L. Collins. The Rev. Disney Robinson. Henry Lumb, Esq. John Jones, Esq. Toward the endowment four individuals subscribed £1000; and Mrs. Lawrence, of Studley Park, with her wonted munificence, sent a donation of £200 in aid of its further augmentation. In addition to this there is a repair-fund of £350, vested in the three per cents. The clergyman's revenue is principally derived from pew- rents, the amount of which will greatly depend upon the popularity of the minister. The old building a little to the left of the church was formerly a bath; and there are persons still living in the town who remember it to have been held in great estimation by the inhabitants on account of its strengthening qualities. A few years since, the following Latin inscription was visible over the entrance-door: " Fontes, benedicite Deo;" it is now entirely concealed by the ivy which hangs in graceful masses over that part of the house. The whole composition partakes much of the character of a village-scene, although there is a considerable population in its immediate vicinity.
