Portrait of a Seaside Parish: Holy Trinity Seaton Carew

£10.00
What links Holy Trinity Church, in the small seaside resort of Seaton Carew in North East England, to the Guinness brewery, Captain Cook, Bobby Shafto, the Victorian explorer Isabella Bird, and Zeppelin pilots? The answers lie in this fascinating journey through the history of a community from the building of the church in 1831 through to more recent times. The reader will be guided through a rich tapestry of information and images about the church and the village, unearthing a series of surprising and fascinating anecdotes about local people from all sorts of backgrounds, who have made the church and the community what it is today. This book has been written by a church member with solid research and help from a wide range of experts and local history enthusiasts, to raise funds to restore the stonework of the church, which has been eroded by the harsh winds off the North Sea. You are not just buying a local and social history book, but also helping to secure the church's future as a focal point of the community. All proceeds will go to the Restoration Fund. More info →
