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.

An 'artist's impression' of how the HLF funded 'Pod' will look once erected next to the tower.

National Lottery Boost for Bramcote Old Church Tower

Bramcote Old Church Tower is to receive support from National Lottery players through a grant of £363,400 from the Heritage Lottery Funding (HLF) to further restore the building and enhance the site for the enjoyment of the community.


Today we have learnt that our application for Heritage works has been given the ‘Permission To Start’ green light which means we can now instruct the architect to get cracking with arranging for the building contractors to start work.

Our success with getting Heritage Lottery Funding was covered on Notts TV. Click here to see the video.

Further events for 2018 are being planned and some will be affected by the ongoing Heritage Lottery Fund work at the Tower.



The HLF work has restarted after the Christmas break and the all the work requiring scaffolding has been completed and the scaffolding taken down. The services have been connected and the trenches filled and the site is gradually being cleared of builders’ materials.











Tower note:
Many thanks to Alan Foster for the gift of a carved wooden dish bearing the Tower logo.
