MENU THE ARTS SOCIETY GADE VALLEY

Church Recording for The Arts Society is making a record of the contents of the church - windows, memorials, woodwork, stonework, textiles etc. It is a very accurate, careful and well-researched record of the contents at that time. It is a record, rather than a historical study. The details of measurements, content, design, designer, date are taken, and then written up in a very precise format. The group only records what they see and do not make artistic or quality judgments.

Primarily, a bound copy of the record is for the church. Photocopies are given to the Diocesan Archives and the libraries of the Victoria and Albert Museum, ChurchCare (formerly Council for the Care of Churches) and The Arts Society. A set of photographs is also lodged with the ChurchCare.

Compiling the Record for St Michael and All Angels, Sunnyside, Berkhamsted is in progress.
