The project has established a database of accurately researched historical and archaeological information on the 400+ churches and former churches and sites that make, or made, up the principal historic religious Christian buildings in Nottinghamshire and the historic archdeaconry of Nottingham. This project is ongoing with new material and edits added regularly.
Research is being undertaken by volunteers throughout the county and beyond and material submitted to the database is reviewed and edited by Emeritus Professor John Beckett and Dr Christopher Brooke.

The aims of this project are as follows:
This is the first time in England that an entire county’s historic churches have been comprehensively analysed to this extent and published in this format.
The project has been funded by the Southwell and Nottingham Diocese and by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Between 2009 and 2014 the HLF (now NLHF) granted £382,000 to the project.
