Holy Trinity Anglican Church York Open Day (Australian Heritage Festival)

Saturday 2nd May 2020


Holy Trinity Church in York is one of the oldest Anglican churches in Western Australia.

This historic church was built using handmade bricks in 1854 and sits amidst picturesque grounds overlooking the Avon River, which can be crossed nearby on York’s unique swing bridge. The building is an excellent example of Victorian Romanesque style architecture and its red bricks harmonize with the scenic countryside of York.

Normally only open for Church services, the entry fee includes morning or afternoon tea and there will be bell ringing demonstrations at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

Readings from ‘An Australian Parsonage’ a fascinating account of life in York written by Janet Millett who lived at the Rectory during the 1860’s will take place at 10.30am and 1.30pm.

An astute observer of the minutiae of everyday life, her book is now regarded as a classic of early colonial social history from a female perspective. All funds raised go towards the upkeep of the Holy Trinity Church.

Entry fees:

Adults $5.00, Concession $4.00, Children - free, Family $10.00, National Trust Member $4.00
