The Centre

Located in the main High Street of this historic market town, the Heritage Centre is a museum of the town’s history from the Norman Conquest to the present day.

The Museum & Heritage Centre at Henley-in-Arden, near Stratford-upon-Avon, England is a unique facility made possible by the generosity of a former Lord of the Manor of Henley-in-Arden, Joseph Alexander Hardy of Pennsylvania and inaugurated by his daughter, Robin Hardy Freed, in November 1996.

Please take a look round our site. We look forward to welcoming you on a visit to the Centre very soon.

This Week in History

19th September 1932

On the 19th September 1932, Tudor Dairies (152 High Street Henley in Arden) was sold to Harry & Arthur Fathers by William G. Hewins. The original premises consisted of a small shop, dwelling house and backyard. Mrs Hewins' handcart for delivering milk was a regular sight before 1932. The cart is part of the collection at the Heritage Centre. By the mid 1930's Tudor Dairies had become famous for making and selling ice cream.
