Holy Trinity Penn Street


King Edward VII visit to Penn Street

On January 16th 1902, King Edward VII visited Earl Howe at Penn House.  They attended Holy Trinity, Penn Street church on the Sunday morning.  The visit was reported in ‘The Sphere’ magazine of 20th January, 1902.

The description of the church and the view from the tower, “The church stands on very high ground, the top of the church tower being 600ft above sea level.  Windsor castle is easily seen from the tower”, reads as if the author may have mistakenly included a description of Holy Trinity, Penn, rather than Holy Trinity, Penn Street, which sits in a slight hollow in Penn woods.
