The Church of the Holy Trinity at Chantry, in the parish of Whatley, Somerset, England, dates from 1844 to 1846. It was designed by George Gilbert Scott and William Moffatt, with further work by William George Brown of Frome, for James Fussell, who owned the Old Iron Works, Mells. It is a Grade I listed building.
