Welcome to the Warwickshire Local History Society
Next Event: Tuesday 20th February 2018 -- evening lecture
Richard Churchley -- Old pubs and lost hostelries of Warwickshire: their history, names and stories
Saturday 25 November 2017: visit to Salford Hall. Record numbers (over 70) joined our pre-Christmas visit to the Salford Hall Hotel. Dr Nat Alcock was a guide to the house's complex social and architectural history, while the reenactment group Guarderobe offered a light-hearted view of the Gunpowder Plot and other events linked to the house.
Tuesday 21st November 2017: On our first Members’ Evening we heard several excellent presentations --
Alec Ross: 'Visualising Local History: the 1910-15 Valuation Survey in Stretton-on-Dunsmore.'
Stewart Fergusson: '‘The Factious Citie of Coventry’: Crisis and Change in the 17th Century.'
Professor Ronnie Mulryne: 'The Stratford Guildhall and Shakespeare's Schoolroom.'
