About the Ickworth Church Conservation Trust

Ickworth Church will be open to the public from 1st August 2020 on a Wednesday & Saturday, times may vary.

The Ickworth Church Conservation Trust (ICCT) was founded in 2006 by the Marquess of Bristol to restore and safeguard the church and churchyard.

ICCT's objectives are to conserve, maintain, repair and administer the former church and churchyard of St Mary's, Ickworth, Suffolk, for the benefit of the public.

In 2012-13, after six years of research and fundraising, the church was restored thanks to generous grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and other donors. Today, ICCT's main focus is to keep the church in good working order, and ensure it is open and can be enjoyed by the general public.
