The Canny Space at Holy Trinity Church, Sunderland

sunderland garths*HOT OFF THE PRESS* - The East End of Sunderland houses some fantastic hidden history; some of which we hope to uncover as part of The Canny Space Project.

During the summer of 2015 we worked in partnership with Sunderland Library Services, local organisation’s and local people who kindly shared some of their memories with us about living in the Garths and the East End of Sunderland from 1940 to 1995.

holy trinity in sunderlandHoly Trinity Church in the East End of Sunderland managed by the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT). Plans are underway to bring the Church of Holy Trinity back into community use and transform it into a centre of stories that will bring to life the unique history of the space and the City. Built between 1718-1719, the Church of Holy Trinity was once at the heart of a very busy port that served the mercantile classes. It housed the first public library of Sunderland, first civic rooms and at one point even the fire engine! However, by the mid 19th Century, the focus of civic activity had moved west and by the 20th Century, town planning had effectively cut off Holy Trinity from the city centre.

The Trust is working in partnership with Sunderland University, Sunderland City Council, Hendon Young Peoples Project and a local advocate to bring this redundant building back into community use.
