chancel repair liability, the law, research and related new stories

It seems that the the PCC are registering apportioned liability under the 1936 tithe act which would seem to be at least slightly odd considering the existence of an enclosure award. It is quite time consuming and expensive to register apportioned liability when compared to registering enclosure award liability. I do not have access to any documentation and so it is hard to know what is actually taking place but I do know there is no enclosure award in Humbleton itself and so it is either merged land or apportioned liability. Apportioned liability is better documented and there is a so called 'record of ascertainments' for all affected churches with copies held in the national archives.
