Welcome

Welcome to the St Kyneburgha Building Preservation Trust.  A group of dedicated trustees has been charged with ensuring the preservation and upkeep of the fabric of our historic church building and its grounds and to raise awareness of the rich and varied history of this important site. The trustees are supported by an active committee which is responsible for organising events to raise money and involvement in the various projects which are in progress at any one time.  We also promote regular giving and welcome donations and legacies.

We are proud of the restorations and developments which have been funded by the Trust. The rescue of the east window was our initial project. Since then there have been many others such as the re-roofing of the South Transept/Lady Chapel with new Collyweston slates.

History

St Kyneburgha nave crossingThe church, with its unique dedication to St Kyneburgha, is according to Simon Jenkins in England’s Thousand Best Churches, ‘One of the finest Norman churches in England’.  Jenkins also places Castor, in the top 100 parish churches in England. Don’t be misled by Jenkins’ placing of Castor in Northamptonshire as it once was.  Since then it has resided in both Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire before settling in the unitary authority of Peterborough.
