Charles Dickens once called Holy Trinity Church Broadstairs 'a hideous temple of flint, like a great petrified haystack' I should point out here, before the people of Broadstairs take me to task over this, that the church as been considerably rebuilt since Dickens said that about it.

Passing Holy Trinity in noticed that the church was open and there was a flower festival on, I have to admit that I have never been inside this church so I thought I would take a look. St George’s Church in Ramsgate is the church I religiously don’t attend and I wouldn’t not go anywhere else.
As you can imagine I publish a book about Holy Trinity Church Broadstairs entitled The Petrified Haystack of Broadstairs click here if you wish to buy it or pop into my bookshop and do so, remember that it is shut on Thursdays and Sundays.
