We are pleased to announce that HM The Queen has approved the appointment of Ms Carol Pyrah to our board of trustees for a period of three years from 1 April 2018.

Carol is currently Assistant Director of Planning at Historic England, formerly English Heritage, where she has spent over two decades in senior roles.  An archaeologist by training, she has had a longstanding interest and involvement in churches and their conservation, ranging from her previous role as founding editor of Church Archaeology (the journal of the Society for Church Archaeology) to being a current member of the Cathedrals Fabric Commission for England.

Peter Ainsworth, chairman of The Churches Conservation Trust, said: “I am delighted that Carol Pyrah is joining the CCT Board. She brings a wealth of respected experience and knowledge of conservation matters and, being based in the North of England, maintains and strengthens our geographic diversity."
