The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF)

Grants are available for not-for-profit organisations in the UK to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a building project and taking it towards the start of work on site.

Church Buildings are eligible, however they must be able to prove that the building is being adapted for new uses.  If your project is encouraging a range of uses this may be worth looking at.

Burial Ground Management System

The Churches Trust for Cumbria, Carlisle Diocese and Atlantic Geomatics are working closely to develop a system to help manage your churchyard and maintain your burial records.  It provides a detailed and accurate on-screen churchyard map showing the location of each grave and memorial, the footprint of the church building and details such as trees, other flora and fauna, paths, buildings, benches and signs.

We would like the diocese to be the first in the country to have all its churchyards mapped.

If you want further information please contact Atlantic Geomatics on 01768 83310 or email bgms@atlanticgeomatics.co.uk
