Worcester Holy Trinity & St Matthews
The old church's most interesting feature was its recycled 14th century roof , taken from the decaying Guesten Hall of the cathedral priory as it was finally demolished in 1864. When Holy Trinity itself was demolished in 1969, the roof was re-erected at the Avoncroft Museum of buildings in Bromsgrove.
Ecclesiastical Parish 
Created in 1866 from Claines Ancient Parish & Worcester St Martin Ancient Parish.
The church was demolished in 1969. In 1952 the Conventional District of Ronkswood with the Mission Church of St Matthew was formed. This ultimately became the parish church of Worcester Holy Trinity, the Mission Church being replaced in 1965 by the current church dedicated to the Holy Trinity & St Matthew.
