Thank you to Gerry Glyde for contributing the image

  • Gerry on 26 Feb 2015 Gerry said

    Countess Waldegrave was a benefactor of the town. In the mid Victorian period she endowed several churches and Holy Trinity was one of her projects. Church attendance, in particular C of E, for the working class was seen as necessary in order to keep people dutiful, law abiding, and importantly non critical of the organisation of society. Nonetheless she used her wealth, derived from her first and second marriage for various town projects.

    How many of the children's pennies were given by pressure of duty, rather than personal wishes.?
    The people of the town gave theselves a fountain that was a benefit for many generations.
