Fleet (Holy Trinity)

Fleet Church

Holy Trinity Church, Fleet, Dorset

Fleet has two churches. The old church can be found at the end of Butter Street and overlooks Chesil Beach and the Fleet. Only the chancel now remains; the building having been severely damaged in a storm in November 1824. It contains some seventeenth century monuments to the Mohun family. Following the storm, the Rector, the Rev. George Gould, built a new church on a new site around a quarter-mile to the north. This was designed in Commissioners' Gothic style by Strickland, 1827-29.
