Welcome to the Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust 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 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.

Green Flag Community Award 2021/22
We are pleased to announce we have been awarded the Green Flag Community Award for a further year. The judges described our site as a welcoming and well-presented place “in a very attractive setting in the heart of the village.” It was deemed to have good accessibility, with “great facilities and a wide range of activities” and drew praise for the interpretive benches and artwork on the site.
The Green Flag Award scheme manager, Peter Todd, said, “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Bramcote Old Church Tower worthy of a Green Flag award.”
“To meet the requirements demanded by the scheme is testament to the hard work of the volunteers who do so much to ensure that the Tower has high standards of horticulture, safety and environmental management and is a place that supports people to live healthy lives.”
Jason Mordan, chair of the Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust, said the group was delighted to have achieved Green Flag status again. “Everyone works really hard to maintain and progress the site, keep it looking good, and explore ever more creative ways to enable the community to enjoy it,” he said.
“It’s an excellent report, and we’ll continue to take the best care of the building and the grounds as a precious piece of Bramcote’s heritage.”
Planning of events through 2022 is well under way. Fully details will be available on this website and our Facebook Page.
The Tower grounds have been open through the pandemic and will continue to remain open so do feel free to visit at any time, still bearing in mind social distancing.
