Phone mast for Holy Trinity

Jun 11 2007

by Kerry Beadling

ONE of Coventry's famous three spires could soon be housing a mobile phone mast.

A phone company wants to use the city centre's landmark Holy Trinity Church, which dates back to the 12th century.

The plan involves putting four antennas and other equipment within the tower at the Priory Row church so that it is not visible.

But some people are worried about health issues surrounding the application.

Local clergy have been asked to consider the scheme by a company called QS4, which looks for well-positioned spaces for antenna installations, on behalf of the T-Mobile network.

Residents and businesses in a 100 metre radius are being consulted on the proposal which will then be looked at by the church committee.

If that approves the plan, then has to go the DAC, which acts as the Church of England's planning authority.

Holy Trinity Church is one of the largest medieval churches in England and was founded in the 12th century for the tenants of the Priory lands which extended over the north of Coventry.

Among its precious artefacts is the Doom painting, which dates to around 1430, and shows Christ in the centre with the stair to heaven above him and below him the souls of the damned being propelled by demons towards the open jaws of hell.

Church warden Sue Wilcox said: "There's been a lot of publicity about recent applications to the Church of England.

"Obviously our congregation and our own church body are concerned about possible health issues. However we understand research shows they are safe."

A spokesman for QS4 hoped if approved the equipment would be in place by the end of the year.

He added: "Churches are normally one of the tallest structures on the skyline and therefore they generally provide an ideal location."
