Holy Trinity Anglican Church Green Space

holy trinity churchLocated at the corner of Mills Road and West Saanich Road, the Holy Trinity Anglican Church and cemetery were completed by 1885. The church presents the architecture of that period in its Gothic Revival Style with high pitched roof lines and open beams. The gravestones composed of either granite, sandstone and marble are inscribed with a variety of styles and symbols. The church with its surrounding green space is a pleasant place to stroll while you learn about the history of settlers in this area of Saanich Peninsula. Both the church and cemetery are heritage sites. The Flight Path  passes right beside the church. This multiuse trail circles the Victoria International Airport and is a pleasant way to extend your walk in your backyard. Across West Saanich Road is Patricia Bay Beach Park and Scoter Trail.
