The Tower Project :   Started in 2004, the Friends of Bramcote Old Church Tower began the task of restoration of the 13th century, grade II listed church tower and the respectful regeneration of the closed and deconsecrated graveyard.  In 2010 Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust was formed and in 2015 an application for Heritage Lottery Funding was made. In 2017 it was granted and the work is on going.  The site is of historical importance locally and no longer associated with the church, but a public space for the community at the centre of the village of Bramcote.

Seeding success

Thanks to everyone observing the restrictions on the Tower site over the winter, the new grass that was sown in October hasn’t been trampled on and is growing nicely. Volunteers continue to do the essential ground maintenance. It’s lovely to see the bare, compacted earth left by the builders begin to recover.

Archaeologists at work

Having the shelter and facilities of the new Pod has meant other specialist work can be undertaken indoors in February and March. Following the major archaeological dig enabled by HLF in May 2018, Notts County Council archaeologist, Emily Gillott, has been on site with volunteers, cataloguing the finds.

These include many pieces of medieval pottery, some painted, some carved; pieces of hand-made brick, tile and window glass; nails and other fragments of workers’ tools. There are also pieces of decorative glass, suggesting an elegant jar, perhaps, or a platter that was used in the church. The finds will be displayed inside the Tower, when we re-open for the first event of the new season.

Our fundraising Quiz Night is a twice-yearly fixture in the Bramcote social calendar, keenly contested and a sell-out every time. Success is very much down to the quizmaster, Gerald Cook, and his wife, Anne – both retired teachers – who devise and research the questions and who indulge the teams’ passion for everything from dingbats to anagrams. “It’s challenging but not too taxing, with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment,” Gerald says. Generous servings of delicious hot food go down a treat. A team from Beeston Players were the winners this time round. Make a note of the next one – Saturday 5 October – and book your table early!

The days are getting longer and spring will soon be here, so now seems to be a good time to re-open the Tower site after the HFL work has finished and the grass has regrown.

The grounds are open to all and is an ideal place if you want to get a few minutes peace in the centre of busy Bramcote to enjoy the crocuses and daffodils.
