Church Recorders RECORDING THE PAST FOR THE FUTURE The Church Recorders comprise a group of around sixteen people who meet every Monday morning between May and September from 10.00am – 12 noon to gather together the information to create a complete record of all the objects in the church. The winter months, generally too cold to do recording work in a church, are spent compiling the notes and photographs from the various sections.   When a record is complete copies are presented to the Church and the Victoria and Albert Art Library, as well as the ChurchCare Library, Historic England and County Record Office. Currently we are in the process of checking and finishing the church record for St Nicholas, Pilton, Rutland.   This is a smaller record than the one we did for St Peter and St Paul, Great Casterton which was over 200 pages long and took more than three years to complete.   We did get it bound into a smart, hardback book and successfully presented it to the church on Sunday 18th November 2018.  The vicar was delighted and it has been very well received generally.   We plan to get a spiral bound copy ready for presentation at Pilton around Easter time. Church Recorders at work Many of us have little or no previous experience but just a general interest in history and the contents of a church, plus a willingness to learn something new and to meet new friends.  There are plenty of books to help us and we work in twos and threes on the various sections, such as Woodwork, Stonework or Windows.
