The project Discover DeCrypt is seen as the last real opportunity to save St Mary de Crypt Church and the Old Crypt Tudor Schoolroom in Southgate St, Gloucester from closure.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) have grant funded the initial design stage of the project. The delivery of the project is to cost in excess of £1.5 million, of which HLF will be requested to fund over £1 million, subject to match-funding from both the private and public sectors of £0.5 million being achieved.
A good proportion of these costs are confidently expected to be met by the generosity of various organisations and trusts. However, the project will not succeed without the grass-roots support of local individuals and organisations.
In view of the importance of making these important historic buildings suitable for wider use within the community, as Old Cryptians, we need to be actively involved as both ‘Friends and Donors’ in supporting the renovation of these historic buildings.
