Holy Trinity Church, Ratcliffe-on-Soar is a Grade I listed parish church in the Church of England in Ratcliffe-on-Soar.

It is part of an informal grouping of five churches that are known collectively as "The 453 Churches" as they straddle the A453. The other churches in the group are:


The church dates from the 13th century. Major restoration work was carried out in 1886, paid for by Earl Howe at a cost of £830.



The church contains a number of memorials to the Sacheverell family including

  • An alabaster monument to Henrie Sacheverell, died 1625
  • An alabaster monument to Henrie and Jane Sacheverell, c. 1590
  • An alabaster monument to Henry Sacheverell and his wife, 1558
  • An alabaster monument to Ralph Sacheverell and his wife, 1539,


The church has a single manual pipe organ which was purchased from St. Winifred's Church, Kingston on Soar in 1936 for a total cost of £29. It was originally hand pumped at a salary of 15 shillings per year. An electric blower was fitted in 1946. It was moved to the north aisle in 1973. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.


There are three bells in the tower but they are of irregular interval so when chimed together they do not sound musical.
