 Warmington Heritage did a project on Grove Farm a few years ago and there is a video on YouTube of Liz Newman speaking in 2012 about the Grove Farm project in a panel session entitled ‘Engaging With History’ at the Tenth Warwick Symposium on Parish Research, ‘Parish Studies Today’.

Wednesday 24th October at 7.30 in the Market Hall Museum, Warwick, Dr Stanley Ireland is to give a talk on the coins in the second hoard from the Herb Centre site.  The hoard has now been acquired by the museum and is on display.  The museum opens at 7.00pm to allow time to see them.  This is a good opportunity to hear what Dr Ireland makes of the very rare coins from the civil war period in Rome following Nero’s death, and what they, and the other coins, might be doing in Warmington. 

The entrance is £7.50 and can be booked on the Museum website  http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/heritageboxoffice

An important note is that from the autumn, the meetings of Warwickshire Local History Society will be moving to Aylesford School in Warwick.  This is in response to members’ requests for improved parking arrangements and it also improves audio-visual and IT provision.
