Village Halls Domesday Book 2021

A record of the good things village halls were doing in 2021 to mark a century of rural community action

Many of England’s 10,000+ village halls date back to the 1920s. To celebrate the contribution they make to rural communities, ACRE created a virtual ‘Domesday Book’ for village halls to record the work they are doing in 2021 and their hopes for the future. Details of over 800 rural community buildings were added.

The record was used to make the case for sustained funding and support for village halls.
