Welcome to the Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust website.

Welcome to the official website of the Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust.  We are the custodians of the remaining church Tower, the sole survivor of the original 12th-century church in Bramcote, Nottingham, England. Nestled in the deconsecrated grounds, our Tower proudly stands as the highest point in Bramcote.
As a registered charity, we are led by a dedicated team of Trustees, supported by a vibrant membership of individuals passionate about our cause. Together, we strive to preserve and celebrate the rich history embodied by this iconic Tower.
Explore these pages to learn more about our mission, the history of the Tower, and how you can join us in safeguarding this historical gem. Thank you for visiting, and we invite you to be a part of our journey in preserving Bramcote’s heritage.

Donate via our website

The Tower Project started in 2004, when 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 a few years later further renovation was possible using Heritage Lottery Funding. The Heritage Lottery Funding funding has now finished but we still require funds to maintain our improved facilites.
