The Bolton Church Recorders
The Bolton Church Recording Group has developed as a committed and enthusiastic team of amateurs achieving a high standard of church recording and willing to help other Groups. The Group has developed a wide expertise in the various aspects of recording, and, thanks to training and development, is able to solve many of the intricate problems of recording from within its own resources, whether that be about an organ, silverware, textiles, memorials, stained glass, or the many other items found in churches.
The Group is proud of the high standard of content and presentation of its records to date which have been much admired. Each of the records produced is deposited in several archives and is a valuable resource, describing in detail an important part of England’s heritage and assisting churches to understand the nature and cultural value of their assets.
The Bolton Group has extended help to others – the Group Leader being active in the provision of assistance and training offered to all Groups in the North West of England, and the Bolton Group photographers running a course for church photographers from across the region.
The Group has developed a strong team spirit, visiting other churches and Groups, learning together at training days, as well as enjoying social activities together.
