e first heard of The Churches Conservation Trust when we visited one of the churches it cares
for. Inside the church were leaflets about the Trust, and the following is information taken from those
leaflets. For comprehensive information about the Trust's important work visit their own website -
use the link above.
The Churches Conservation Trust (formerly known as the Redundant Churches Fund) was established in 1969 and
now cares for over 330 buildings. Basically it cares for church buildings that are no longer used for
regular worship. The churches are still consecrated. The Trust tries to maintain the buildings,
which are unique and of architectural or archaeological importance, thus preserving them for future
generations to enjoy.
Leaflets are available for different areas of England, and the one we read - for Wiltshire - gives a short
description of each church they look after. These leaflets can be obtained from the address below.
The Trust is a registered charity - No. 258612. As the leaflet states, all donations will be gratefully received!
