Amersham Church Recorders in 2019

This year has been one of consolidation and finalising the Records for the churches at Pitstone and Edlesborough, north of here in Buckinghamshire.  Both are redundant churches in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust but still have a part to play in village life.  The proof reading and sorting of photos is under way before they are printed and bound for presentation to the churches.  The Amersham Church Recorders in this group are now few in number and are going to take honourable retirement.

But some of these Church Recorders are also members of the City Churches Recording group and are not retiring yet!  They are coming to the end of fact-finding and research at St Magnus the Martyr where there is masses to check as it is a very big church with lots of artefacts.  In the autumn this group is going to start fieldwork at St Katharine Cree which is at Aldgate so an easy journey from Amersham. This is a smaller church but dates back to before the Great Fire of 1666 so of great interest.

If you would like more information, and perhaps even consider join the group, give me, Liz Chalmers, a ring on 01494 726928.  It is a really sociable activity and is certainly never boring!
