Save the Old Heath Church

Save the Old Heath Church

We dont want them to destroy the history that remains in our village

Why is this important?

Please save the Heath Old Church.

Located next to J29 of the M1, this is our hidden local gem, that is under threat from Hs2.

The village of lunt and le Hethe first mentioned in the Doomsday book in 1086 united to become Heath some time during the 12th and 13th century.
The church was built in the 11th century and used by monks for 500 years.
It is very sad to think this will be destroyed by Hs2. The building is grade 2 listed the village is subject to a preservation order due to its significant archological and historic significance. The grave yard easily contains 500 + deceased, most st ill have relatives living in our community.

Please sign our petition and save this piece of history.

Many thanks, from us all.
