History
Uppington Holy Trinity Church was built around the Norman Period. The original architect was George Sidebotham. It was restored and partly rebuilt in 1885 by J.P. Pritchard of Darlington. All financed by the Fourth Duke of Cleveland. It has since been listed as a grade 2 building.

Pevsner says the church building has an early Norman nave and chancel, with some interesting 11th century features. The blocked north doorway, which has some Anglo Saxon features, is carved with a long dragon with loose knots in its tail. There is a Norman window in the south wall of the chancel and there is a three-light 14th century window. The 1885 rebuilding dramatically altered the building, with heightened and strengthened walls, an extended nave, and a new tower.

Uppington's association with Wroxeter with its Roman city can be seen in the apparently Roman altar in the churchyard to the south of the nave. There is also an attractive living ancient yew with hollow centre of 28' girth.
