Friends of Friendless Churches

The Friends of Friendless Churches is a registered charity active in England and Wales.[1] It campaigns for and rescues redundant historic churches threatened by demolition, decay, or inappropriate conversion.[2] To that end, as of March 2012, it owns 44 former churches or chapels, 23 of which are in England,[3][4] and 21 in Wales.[5]

History

The charity was formed in 1957 by Ivor Bulmer-Thomas, a writer, former MP and a high church Anglican,[6] who became its first chairman; its executive committee included prominent politicians and architects. Initially the charity campaigned and obtained grants for the repair and restoration of churches within its remit. The 1968 Pastoral Measure established the Redundant Churches Fund (now called the Churches Conservation Trust), which it was thought would obviate the need for the Friends. However, the Church Commissioners turned down a number of buildings that the executive committee considered worthy of preservation, including Old St Matthew's Church, Lightcliffe, and St Peter's Church, Wickham Bishops. The charity therefore decided in 1972 to change its constitution, allowing it to acquire threatened buildings either by freehold or by lease. The tower of the church at Lightcliffe was the first property to be vested with the charity.[7]

Activities

The charity raises money from a number of sources. Since 1999, it has been recognised in Wales as the equivalent of the Churches Conservation Trust (which only covers churches in England), and as a consequence receives full funding for taking Anglican churches into its care. Of this, 70% comes from the State via Cadw, and 30% from the Church in Wales.[8] In England, grants are sometimes obtained from bodies such as English Heritage, as in the case of St Mary's Church, Mundon,[9] but otherwise funds are raised by donations and local money-raising campaigns. Some of the churches have been supported by the formation of local groups of Friends, such as Caldecote Church Friends,[10] and the Friends of St Andrew's, Wood Walton.[11] Members of the public can make donations, become a member of the charity, or leave a legacy in their wills.[12] In addition the charity administers two trusts,[13] one of which, the Cottam Will Trust, was established by Rev S. E. Cottam for "the advancement of religion of objects of beauty to be placed in ancient Gothic churches either in England or Wales".[14]

All the churches owned by the charity are Marquess of Anglesey, the ecclesiastical patron is Rev Wyn Evans, Bishop of St David's, the president is the Marquess of Salisbury, and the chairman is Roger Evans.[15] In 2007 the charity achieved its 50th anniversary, in celebration of which they published a book entitled Saving Churches, containing details of their history and accounts of their churches.[16]

List of vested churches

The list is split into two sections, one for England and the other for Wales. This division reflects the former management of the English churches (with one exception) by the Church of England, the Welsh churches by the Church in Wales, and the different funding arrangements in the two countries.

St Peter Wickham Bishops, Essex
11th century It is thought this was originally a private chapel for the Bishops of London, and then became a parish church. It was restored in 1850, but then became a chapel of ease in the parish of St Bartholmew. The fabric deteriorated and it was declared redundant in 1975. Since 1995 it has been used as an artist's studio.[18] II*[19]
St Peter Llancillo, Herefordshire
11th to 12th century Built in a remote position near the England–Wales border, it is thought the site was used by a hermit in the 6th century. The church was restored in the 17th century, but it closed for public worship in 2006.[20][21] II*[22]
Urishay Castle Chapel Urishay, Peterchurch, Herefordshire
Early 12th century The chapel is built in the bailey of the now-ruined Urishay Castle. A chancel was added in the 13th century, alterations were made in the 16th and 17th centuries, and restorations have been carried out during the 20th century. It has been under the care of the charity since 1978.[23][24] II*[25]
St John Allington, Wiltshire
12th century Although it originated in the 12th century, only the chancel arch and part of a Norman arch remain from that period. The rest was built in 1847–51, and was designed by the "priest-architect" Fr William Grey.[26] II[27]
All Saints Ballidon, Derbyshire
A simple stone church with a bellcote, seen from the southeast 12th century Originating in the 12th century, the church was much rebuilt and restored in the 19th century.[28] II[29]
St Mary Magdalen Boveney, Buckinghamshire
A flint church seen from the southeast, with a red tiled roof and, at the far end, a weatherboarded tower 12th century The church stands on the north bank of the River Thames, and was built for bargemen working on the river. It was declared redundant in 1975 and came under the care of the charity in 1983. It was later found that the tower was unstable, and repairs costing £200,000 have been carried out, partially funded by choral concerts held at nearby Eton College.[30][31] I[32]
St Leonard Spernall, Warwickshire
A stone church seen from the south east with steep tiled roofs. Nearest is the chancel with a round east window, beyond that is a larger, higher nave, at the end of which is a bellcote 12th century Alterations were made to the church in the 14th and 18th centuries. In the mid-19th century a chancel, porch and bellcote were added. It was declared redundant in 1972. After an application for conversion to a house was declined, it was bought by the Ancient Monuments Society to save it from demolition. A series of repairs has been carried out, and since 1983 it has been used as an artist's workshop.[33][34] II*[35]
St John the Baptist Sutterby, Lincolnshire
12th century Additions were made to the church in the 14th century and a porch was built in 1743. It was made redundant in 1972. It was donated as a monument in 1981. Major repairs were carried out in 2002, and more are being undertaken in 2010.[36] II[37]
St Mary Hardmead, Buckinghamshire
13th century The church was built to serve a medieval village that has since disappeared. Additions were made to it in the 15th century. After it was declared redundant, it was proposed to convert it into a house, but it was acquired by the charity and, as of 2010, is managed by the Friends of Hardmead.[38] I[39]
Ruins of St Andrew's Church South Huish,
South Hams, Devon
13th century Additions were made to the church in the 14th and 15th centuries, but its fabric deteriorated and by 1866 it was considered to be beyond repair. A new church was built in a nearby village and all the fittings were removed. The charity has carried out work to slow down the rate of decay of the ruins, and services are held annually at the site.[40] II*[41]
St Andrew Woodwalton, Cambridgeshire
13th century Additions and modifications have been made over the centuries since it was built. Because of its isolated position, it has suffered from theft and, since it was declared redundant, it has been subject to damage from vandalism. In addition the foundations are moving, leading to parts of the church settling at different rates. The church has been placed on the Heritage at Risk Register and applications have been made for grants towards its repair.[11][42][43] II*[44]
St Mary Fordham, Norfolk
13th century The tower and south aisle were demolished in about 1730, leaving a simple church consisting of a nave and chancel, with a bellcote.[45] II*[46]
St Denis East Hatley, Cambridgeshire
A simple stone church, consisting of a nave and chancel, viewed from the south-west c.1300 A simple church without tower or spire. The nave dates from about 1300; the chancel was rebuilt by William Butterfield in 1871–74, with a reredos articulated in different-coloured stones.[47] II*[48]
St Mary Mundon, Essex
14th century The church is constructed from a variety of materials; the nave is in stone, the chancel in brick, the aisle on three sides of the tower is timber-framed, the belfry is weatherboarded, and the roof is tiled. Some of the original 18th-century furniture is still present. Repair and conservation work, assisted by a grant of £140,000 from English Heritage, has been carried out.[9][49] I[50]
St Mary Magdalene Caldecote, Hertfordshire
14th to 15th century The church stands in a deserted medieval village that was abandoned mainly during the 15th and 16th centuries. It was repaired during the 18th century, but because of depopulation it was declared redundant in 1975. It has been under the care of the charity since 1982, and its survival is now assisted by the Caldecote Church Friends.[51][52][53] II*[54]
Ayshford Chapel Ayshford, Devon
15th century This was the private chapel of the Ayshford family of the adjacent Ayshford Court, and it was renovated in the 19th century. The charity undertook major work in 2001–02 that included restoration of the internal salmon-pink limewash, and repair of the stained glass.[55][56][57] I[58]
St Mary Eastwell, Kent
To the left is a battlemented tower, in the middle a ruined wall, and to the right the end of a stone chapel with a red tiled roof 15th century Only the tower, the wall of the south aisle, and the 19th-century mortuary chapel remain.

St John the Baptist Papworth St Agnes, Cambridgeshire
1530 The church was almost completely rebuilt in the 19th century, to a design thought to be by its rector, Rev J. H. Sperling. By the 1970s it was largely derelict, and it was taken into the care of the charity in 1979. The church has been restored with the addition of a kitchen and toilets, and it is used as a community centre.[66][67] II*[68]
Tuxlith Chapel Milland, West Sussex
16th century A gallery was added to the chapel in the 17th century,and during the following century the north transept was built. Because of population growth, a new larger church was built nearby in 1879, and the chapel was used as a Sunday school. This use continued until the 1930s, but the building's fabric subsequently deteriorated and it was declared redundant in 1974. The chapel has been restored and is now used as a community centre, hosting concerts and other events.[69][70][71] II[72]
