St Mary & St Michael, Trumpington

History of Trumpington church

The church is a fine example of a building of the second quarter of the 14th century, with clearstorey lights set above the piers of notably lofty nave-arcades. Among the fittings, the Trumpington tomb is noteworthy and the Trumpington brass is among the earliest and finest in the country. Some fragments of 13th and 14th century glass survive.
