Welcome to the The Cornwall Historic Churches Trust

Ruin_Gulval_churchyardsmallThe Cornwall Historic Churches Trust was formed in 1955 to assist in the restoration and repair of Cornish churches which have architectural or historic merit.  Our patron is HRH the Duke of Cornwall.

The Trust has limited capital and resources and its work can only continue and be effective through the generosity and support of our Friends in Cornwall and beyond. We welcome new Friends.  If you would like further details of the benefits of joining, have a look at the Friends section of this website. The Trust is a registered charity and churches and chapels of all denominations are eligible to apply for assistance. For more information about the Trust, go to About Us.

Look at the Church Histories section and explore the map showing those churches and chapels which have contributed to this project so far. You’ll find details of who to get in touch with.

We can put you in touch with our historian and archivist if you need help with writing your history, and we can provide photographs if necessary.
