    Story

    Historic churches are special spaces worth conserving. Be it a spectacular town centre church dripping in ornamentation, or the quiet simplicity of a norman village church, each has something to offer. Architectural and social histories, spaces in which communities have gathered for centuries, or simply a quiet space for contemplation away from the crowds.

    Together with my friend and colleague Adam Klups, DAC Secretary at Gloucester Diocese, I will be walking the Camino Ingles this April. 118km across Spain, arriving in Santiago de Compostela on Easter Sunday.

    I'm raising money for the three Historic Churches Trust which support the repair and conservation of churches across the diocese of Oxford, the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust, the Berkshire Historic Churches Trust and the Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust.

    We will be posting updates on Instagram, so please follow @ adam_and_liz_walking_to_santiago to check on our progress!

    Thanks for contributing to the conservation of our shared heritage.

      After cancelling the trip to Spain for a second year running Adam and I made the most of staying in the UK and walked the 102 miles of the Cotswold Way instead! We completed it over three weekends this year, seeing the spectacular countryside changing with the seasons. Of course, along the way we visited a number of historic churches! Thank you so much for your very kind donations, I know how much parishes will benefit from these funds in the form of grants to repair their churches.
