This was established nationally in 1971 on the initiative of the Victoria and Albert Museum. To date over 1300 church records have been produced.
Church recorders are volunteers lead by a member, and work in a team. A detailed record is made of architectural features and artefacts. Copies are given to the church, the V&A, the Church Authorities and one is retained by the local Arts Society.
In 2017, a Record was completed of St Nicholas Church in Ringwould near Deal . This was done in partnership with The Arts Society Dover, Deal and Sandwich.
Molly Robinson and her team present the finished Record of St. Nicholas church on Sunday June 4th 2017.
