Parish History

Derby Holy Trinity London Road was originally part of Derby_St_Peter,_Derbyshire and the chapel opened in 1836 licensed for baptisms and burials. It became a parish in 1847. The church closed in 1972 when the parish united with Derby_Christ_Church,_Derbyshire

The living of St. Peter's is a discharged vicarage, with that of Normanton annexed, valued in the king's books at £8; net income, £148; patrons, the Rev. C.Wright and two brothers. The parochial church is ancient, but of uncertain date. Trinity Church, in the parish, erected in 1836, was purchased of the builder by subscription, and endowed with £1000 by B. West, Esq., of Brighton, whose family is to hold the patronage for 40 years, after which it will be vested in Trustees. The parish also includes the chapel of Boulton.
