For some of us - the start of spring means it's time to go camping but more and more of us are opting for "champing" - camping inside a church.

The idea started at All Saints church in Aldwincle in Northamptonshire a few years ago.

Now more churches than ever before are opening their doors to overnight guests - to raise much-needed funds.

Adult champers pay between £40 and £50 pounds per night - and that does include a toilet.

All Saints is one of 12 disused churches the Churches Conservation Trust opens for sleepovers.
