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.

    The Reverend’s Rebuke

    Sunday 12 September 2:30pm (SOLD OUT) and 5:00pm

    Bramcote Old Church Tower, Town St, Bramcote, Nottingham NG9 3DP

    Everything was going well for the Reverend Thomas Wilkinson, hardworking curate of Attenborough-with-Bramcote, until a letter landed on his doorstep on May 26th 1835.

    Where do you go for redress when your good name has been trampled through the mud and you think you know the real reason why you have been so ill-served? Mr Wilkinson believed he knew it.

    But would any of his persecutors admit the truth?

    Tickets £5 available online:
