Leamington Spa in 100 Buildings

Feature 05

The Story of Leamington Spa in 100 Buildings

This project is led by five members of the Leamington History Group and we began work at the start of 2017.

The project now has the full support of the Committee of the Leamington History Group and it has agreed, in principle, to fund the printing of the book.

The book will consist of  articles about 100 buildings which exist, or which used to exist, in Royal Leamington Spa and through these articles to tell a good part of the history of the town. There will be potted histories which give a wider picture of major types of buildings such as churches and schools.

95 articles have been written so far and we are making good progress with editing the articles and deciding on the format of the book. We expect it to be about 300 pages and it will be illustrated.

We will publish ii in 2018. Pricing has not yet been confirmed but members of LHG will have a preferential rate.
