Holy Trinity Church was designed in 1845/6 by Anthony Salvin who lived in East Finchley and was the Vicar's Warden. At that time the area was still little more than a village, but it developed rapidly after the railway was extended to Edgware and High Barnet between 1867 and 1872. In the 1860s the church was enlarged. The churchyard contains a number of mature trees and some interesting tombs.

Fuller information:

Holy Trinity Church is constructed of ragstone with freestone dressings and has a bell-cote and spirelet at the west end. In the 1860s the church was enlarged, with north and south aisles added, each having a separate pitched roof. The churchyard contains some interesting monuments, with tombstones set in the grass. A tarmac path runs through the churchyard and there are a number of mature trees including a variety of evergreen trees, conifers and a holly hedge onto Church Lane.
