Step Into Spring

From the 26th of March until the 31st of May we will be putting a spotlight on a variety of walking routes that feature the historic churches in the care of the Trust and the local communities surrounding them.

Historic churches are a part of the natural and cultural landscape and there are few better ways to take in the world outside this spring than taking a stroll using our walking or cycling routes.

Keep an eye on our website and social media over the next few months to find a walk featuring a historic church near you. If you would like to find out more about creating your own walking route, please get in touch with your local community officer or get in touch using our contact us form.

If you find yourself out and about during this Walking Festival, please don’t forget to sign your name in the visitor book and let us know about your travels on social media using #stepintospring and tagging CCT in your post! Donations are of course welcomed via the church wall safe, ‘text to donate’ code or via our website.
