Bourne Preservation Trust ©2016

Originally conceived out of Bourne Preservation Society, the Trust was formed to carry out the restoration and re-opening of Bourne Cemetery Chapel.

In 2014, after over 6 years of difficult discussions with

Bourne Town Council, we were forced to abandon the project, as we

simply could not continually overcome the obstacles put in our path by

councillors who had voted to demolish the building before it was listed

at Grade II status by English Heritage in 2007.

The chapel is the oldest listed T-shaped chapel in England, and as such,

is a building well worth preserving for the use of future generations.

It is hoped that in 2017, by then 10 years after it was granted listed building status, our Town Council will ensure that a project is put in place, by them or others, to restore the building for reuse.

In 2016, Bourne Preservation Society merged with Bourne Civic Society in the interest of strengthening both groups for the future and the benefits of that move are becoming clear after only a few months.

Bourne Preservation Trust, a Private Limited Company Limited by Guarantee, and a registered charity, is now attached to the Bourne Civic Society, but continues as before with the same trustees, who are now also members of Bourne Civic Society committee.
