Southwell and Nottingham Church History Project and Open Churches Project

Southwell and Nottingham Church History Project and Open Churches Project

The Church History Project was set up in 1998 in conjunction with the University of Nottingham to provide an accurate detailed historical and archaeological record for each church and church site within the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. This was undertaken using volunteer researchers managed by a professisonal team.
The recent award of a Heritage Lottery Grant has enabled this work to expand into both education and tourism under the heading of the Open Churches Project

  • Learning: quality educational materials for churches to use with a variety of ages and groups, particularly schools and other establishments.
  • ¬†Welcoming and guiding visitors to and around our churches: organising Open Churches Weekends, producing guides and themed trails.
