Holy Trinity church in Slad is a small chapel built in the 9th century, standing on a hill just opposite the Woolpack pub. Both it and Slad are closely linked with Laurie Lee, the author of Cider with Rosie, who now lies buried in the churchyard. Holy Trinity opened in 1834 as a chapel of ease to Painswick.
The chancel and nave were designed by Charles Baker of Painswick. A gallery added in 1836 was removed in 1869 during alterations by Benjamin Bucknall which saw the addition of the North aisle and porch. The church is surrounded by 4 churchyards which contain around 1000 graves in addition to that of Laurie Lee.
