New members of Warmington Heritage Group are always welcome! November is traditionally when people renew their membership but you can join at any time of the year. We normally meet on the third Thursday of the month in Warmington Village Hall at 7.30pm, though in the summer months we also take advantage of the lighter evenings to have a walk and talk in the local area. We have at least two outings further afield during the year, as well as taking part in other local events.

Fees are only £10 a year and whether your interest is local history and heritage or archaeology our programme is very wide ranging! For more information please contact us – you would be most welcome.

Archaeology Open Day Great Success

Comments Off on Archaeology Open Day Great Success

The 2013 archaeology open day at the National Herb Centre was a great success with our busiest event yet. Our visitors were fascinated by the excavation currently underway at the site and there was standing room only for some parts of the day. A big thank you to all the many volunteers who helped make the day go so well, both during the event and in all the preparation.

This has been beautifully illustrated by local artists and thanks to a grant from the Peugeot Heart of England Foundation is available at only £3 a copy plus package and postage.

Family Event a Great Success

Comments Off on Family Event a Great Success

The 2012 third annual family archaeology event was a great success with around 300 people of all ages enjoying the archaeology, traditional crafts, talks and children’s activities. With lots of help and support from our wonderful volunteers – and assisted by a largely sunny day – everyone seemed to have a really enjoyable time.

Many people had travelled some distance to visit the event and found much of interest – whether it was discovering more about the history of Warmington and surrounding settlements, learning archaeological skills or finding out about the life of an Anglo-Saxon.

The event showed it is possible to make history appeal to people of all interests and ages.

This is a really exciting time for Warmington Heritage Group, and the archaeology is uncovering some really surprising and challenging finds – watch this space!
