A record 784 walkers turned out for the Bartlow Walk on 30th April. We were so lucky to have a sunny day and a happy crowd, ranging from dedicated walkers, two of whom have completed every one of our fourteen walks, to families enjoying the history trail and walkers joining us for the first time. Huge thanks to a great team of volunteers who gave their time, sponsors who gave their money and participants who paid to come along.
 
We don’t yet know how much money was raised for our three causes - the official estimate so far is “lots and lots”! When the figures are known we will publish that. In the meantime please put 6th May 2018 in your diaries!

Mediaeval Wall Paintings In Bartlow Church Revealed

After several years of fund raising and planning, we are delighted to announce that conservation work to the three mediaeval wall paintings in St Mary's Church Bartlow is now complete.

The church is open during daylight hours and visitors are welcome to call in and view these magnificent paintings.  A small interpretation centre at the back of the church has two posters describing the paintings and their conservation prepared by the conservator Tobit Curteis Assocates LLP.  A switch next to the posters will turn on some lights that will enable the paintings to be viewed in all their glory. 

The conservators full report with photographs may be found at the following link
