Archive – description
Over 7000 items grouped under nearly 1300 subjects including photographs, estate brochures, maps, memorabilia of local events, Parish Magazines, books by local people and much more.
Gifts of items for consideration as additions to the Archive are welcome. If you have any items such as documents, photographs etc. which you think would enhance our archive but you would rather not part with them, then these can be copied and the originals returned to you.
Copies of archive material are available subject to copyright.
Special viewings can be arranged by appointment.
Please note that the search facility on the main website (where you are now) does not search within the Local History Archive, nor, conversely, does the search facility within the Local History Archive span the main website.
A full subject index may be downloaded (attachment below) but may also be searched by following the Search the Archive link below.
A guide to interpreting the index codes may also be found in the attachments below.
The full current index is available to personal callers at the Local History Centre and contains all 7335 artefacts, documents & photographs, utilising 14,607 indexed entries under 1272 subject headings (numbers accurate as at July 2011).
The Knowle Society also works with the Warwickshire County Record Office whose archive Warwickshire’s Past Unlocked is available online.
