The Church Monuments Society was founded in 1979 and offers a focus for all who have an interest in church monuments of all types and periods. It was conceived to encourage the appreciation, study and conservation of church monuments both in the UK and abroad.
The Society organizes biennial symposia, annual study days, an AGM, at least three excursions a year and some additional ad hoc events.
The Society publishes an annual academic journal 'Church Monuments' and a less formal, informative twice yearly Newsletter. These publications are provided free to members, but may be purchased separately.Visit website
The PMSA aims to heighten public appreciation of Britain's public sculpture, and to contribute to its preservation, protection and promotion. It seeks to achieve this through several projects that include: the National Recording Project, the Sculpture Journal, Save our Sculpture and the Marsh Award for Public Sculpture.
