Leamington Spa Art gallery & Museum

There is an interesting exhibition: “Are You in This? Leamington Spa in the Great War”, running from 28th July until 11th November

This exhibition will mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, and tell the story of Leamington Spa and its people during the conflict. It will look at the experiences of local women and men who served in the war, from fighting at the front to caring for the wounded.

Information required.

Have you noticed any previously unknown “crop marks” which have appeared in crops or grassland in this hot, dry weather? We would be interested to know about them. Please use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom right of this page.

We are hoping to record how the village got it’s water supply in years gone by, including the use of springs, wells and hydraulic ram pumps (or any other methods of supply). Again, please use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom right of this page if you can help. Thank you.
