About us

“Windows on Warwickshire” aims to promote access to historic collections representing the very best of Warwickshire’s heritage, culture and personalities.

The project web site contains over 10,000 fascinating items – many made available in digital format for the first time. A wide range of resources are represented – including old photographs, rare documents, maps, historic buildings, art, letters, fossils, literature, everyday memorabilia and much much more.

Each item is interpreted by relevant subject experts and the web site database can be explored using a variety of powerful search tools. A series of “Spotlights” focus on key aspects of the collections and give users the added opportunity to improve their understanding of Warwickshire’s unique past.

Working in Partnership

The project developed partnerships with local museums, archives, libraries, art galleries and other collection holders to identify materials to digitise. The “Windows on Warwickshire” partnership includes:

  • Compton Verney
  • Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum
  • Nuneaton & Bedworth Museum and Art Gallery
  • Stratford District Council
  • The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
  • Warwick Castle
  • Warwickshire County Record Office
  • Warwickshire Library & Information Service
  • Warwickshire Museum
