The Rectory Society
The Rectory Society estimate that there are approximately 14,000 rectories in the UK. With so many rectories now in private hands the Society provides an important social and advisory forum for owners and we have been delighted to support their development. Their Patron, Her Grace, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, retired from Chatsworth to the comforts of a village rectory herself, and made an engaging speech at this year’s Spring AGM touching on both her past and present homes
As part of our sponsorship of this growing organisation we have worked with one of our insurers to evolve an insurance scheme which specifically meets the risks of owning a rectory and we have negotiated a significant discount for members of the Rectory Society. Handsome rectories are at the core of so many of our villages and are often the best architectural archetypes of their period, and really merit specialist protection.
