Cowes : Holy Trinity Church

 


Holy Trinity Church in Cowes was consecrated in 1832, at the sole expense of Mrs Sarah Goodwin, to provide her son-in-law, the Rev. Maximilian Geneste, with a 'Living'. The Church is closely associated with the Royal Yacht Squadron, and the majority of the Memorials commemorate officers or members of the R.Y.S.
