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.

Bramcote Old Church Tower now has a Facebook page.

After the construction of the Pod and other HLF work, areas of the site have been re-seeded. Unfortunately this means the Tower site is now closed to the public and will reopen in Spring 2019.

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.


Community activities

Our HLF funding and designation as a community heritage site means that we can put on all kinds of new family activities this coming year. Saturday March 30 is our tentative date for re-opening the site after the winter and with Mothering Sunday the following day in mind, there’ll be a Crafts Workshop led by Sherrin Fleming, where children can make some lovely personalised gifts (for mums and carers.)
