Like many marshland churches a mixture of greenstone and brick. The tower and nave of Holy Trinity, Bilsby, are eighteenth-century whilst the chancel and north arcade are Perpendicular.

There is a memorial to Sir John Byllesby (died 1640) in the chancel.

A restoration of 1918 was largely funded by an American descendant, Major H. M. Byllesby.

Like many marshland churches a mixture of greenstone and brick, but nave and chancel are rendered in unattractive smooth grey cement stucco.

The tower and nave of Holy Trinity, Bilsby, are eighteenth-century whilst the chancel and north arcade are Perpendicular.

There is a memorial to Sir John Byllesby (died 1640) in the chancel.

A restoration of 1918 was largely funded by an American descendant, Major H. M. Byllesby.

Crudely fashioned steps and pulpit base two tree boles are unusual.  This appears to be modern work.
