Holidaymakers are being encouraged to embrace a new type of experience – camping in churches, or “champing”.

Run by the Churches Conservation Trust, champers stay at the medieval All Saints Church, Aldwincle, as part of a package which also offers countryside walks and canoeing along the River Nene with canoe hire firm Canoe2.

Peter Aiers, regional director at the Churches Conservation Trust, said champing was a new way for people to experience historic church buildings and to support the trust.

He added: “Northamptonshire is the perfect place to launch this new concept as it is a beautiful and, in my mind, under-visited county.”

Champing will run until September. For more information go to www.visitchurches.
