First, there was glamping, and now champing? Churches across England are offering beds to rent under the beatific buttresses for the 2015 camping season.

The Churches Conservation Trust has listed three sites as champing options: Church of St Cyriac and St Julitta at Swaffham Prior, Cambridgeshire; All Saints’ Church in Aldwincle, Northamptonshire (pictured above) or the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Fordwich, Kent.

The practice started as a pilot last year at Aldwincle, and has expanded for the 2015 season, which has already had over 150 bookings.

It's £45 per person per night, including breakfast, if booked before June 14. Afterwards, the price goes up to £60.
