From The History Press website:

For the first time in its 750-year existence, a full history of Holy Trinity is available to the general public. One of only a small number of parish churches to be Grade I listed, Holy Trinity displays its rich heritage through stained glass, memorials, unique woodwork and glorious painted ceilings. It also houses the tomb of Sutton Coldfield’s most famous son, John Vesey, Bishop of Exeter. Vesey’s work for the benefit of both church and town, with the blessing of King Henry VIII, continues to earn him the respect of the local community in every generation. Funded by the Heritage Lottery, this book is a complete and up-to-date history of an ancient place of worship, preserving its story alongside a major re-ordering of the church interior, which has created a space for church and community fit for the twenty-first century.
