Churches Conservation Trust

The Churches Conservation Trust is a charity which aims to protect historic churches at risk in England.

Nationally the Trust cares for over 300 churches. The Trust was originally established in 1969 as the Redundant Churches Fund, as a partnership of church, state and charity driven by church heritage enthusiasts.[1] The Trust's Website includes details of the churches, visitor information and in some cases the churches can be hired and even used for church camping!.
