Holy Trinity in Sunderland is collapsing. It is one of just two Grade I early Georgian churches surviving in the northeast of England. It has been on the Heritage at Risk register for several years and has been nominated as one of the ‘7 Most Endangered’ buildings in Europe. This church marks an important development in the history of Sunderland, which by the 1700s, was a vibrant and prosperous portal town. In particular, it was notable for its sea coal trade with France and the Netherlands.
