Chapel and Heritage Fund

Generations of pupils are justly proud of their school’s history, its buildings, and artefacts. We are determined to preserve the heritage of the school for the future, but it comes at a cost and we need additional support through the Chapel and Heritage Fund to help us maintain and preserve our historic buildings and our precious artefacts.

In addition works to the roof trusses in the Aubrey Chapel (Vestry) to eliminate dry rot has been completed, and a dehumidifier to preserve the organ has been installed

 

What is next?

Already planned from remaining funds is specialist repair to the Victorian pitch pine frame of the Chapel door, restoration of a pre-Reformation screen, and cleaning and rehanging of the portraits of two of our benefactors, Lord Atkin and J R Cobb.

With your support we can plan to undertake more projects, including

  • Restoration of the medieval stalls. Est. £3,000
  • Refurbishment of benches donated in memory of Old Breconians. Est. £1,000
  • Repair, cleaning and restoration of the stained-glass windows in the Chapel and Aubrey Chapel (Vestry). Est. £70,000

To help us grow the Chapel and Heritage Fund, please make a donation to the Fund on the Make a Gift page.  If you would like to offer a specific donation for one of the identified Chapel projects, please contact Martyn Thomas on 01874 615483 or martyn.thomas@christcollegebrecon.com
