A 19th century representation of the medieval symbol of the Holy Trinity. Pater ('father'), Filius ('son'), Spiritus ('spirit') and Deus ('God'). The lines linking the outher symbols read non est ('is not'), but the lines linking to the middle read est ('is').


The church is by Bodley, 1882. It has subsumed neighbouring parishes, and is consequently now probably the longest church dedication in England.
