Church Recorders CONSERVING OUR PAST – SECURING OUR FUTURE The Church Recorders comprise a group of around sixteen people who meet every Monday morning between May and September from 10.00am – 12 noon to gather together the information to create a complete record of all the objects in the church. The winter months, generally too cold to do recording work in a church, are spent compiling the notes and photographs from the various sections. When a record is complete copies are presented to the Church and the Victoria and Albert Art Library, as well as the ChurchCare Library, Historic England and County Record Office. Currently we are in the process of compiling two records. The first one is for the relatively large church of St Peter and St Paul, Great Casterton which has taken over two years to complete , and the next for St Nicholas, Pilton which is in a little village. We are finalising the details of both these churches and hoping to be ready for presentation this spring. Church Recorders at work Many of us have little or no previous experience but just a general interest in history and the contents of a church, plus a willingness to learn something new and to meet new friends. There are plenty of books to help us and we work in twos and threes on the various sections, such as Woodwork, Stonework or Windows.
