Administrative History:
  • The first church of the Holy Trinity in Holborn was situated on Little Queen Street, as Kingsway had not yet been constructed. It was built in 1829-1831, but was demolished in 1909 after work on the Piccadilly Line undermined the foundations. A new church was built between 1909 and 1911, designed by Belcher and Joass and modelled on the church of Santa Maria della Pace in Rome. This church was closed by 1991.
