St Botolph's Church is a magnificent 15th century church dedicated to St Botolph. One of the most interesting part of the church is its magnificent carved font canopy one of only four such canopies in all of England.

Though the bulk of St Botolph's Church dates to the 14th and 15th centuries, several fragments of Saxon stones are embedded in the walls, suggesting that a church stood here long before the Norman Conquest.

On Knapton Road is the elegant Rectory, built in 1832.

The recorded history of the village goes back to the time of the Domesday book. Trunch has seen its share of archaeological finds including a Mesolithic axe head which indicates that the area was settled as far back as 4000BC.

There is just one pub in the village - The Crown Inn, a pretty village inn standing below the churchyard.

 

Trunch also boasts a Village Hall, a general store, playing field, Village Green and post office along with a social club.
