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

28th October 1928

On 28th October 1928 Lord of the Manor William John Fieldhouse died. He was born in Newport, Shropshire in 1857. His principal activities were with St Stephen's Wheel Works and Griffin Foundry in Birmingham. William was a great benefactor: he established several charities; donated generously to Stratford Hospital; and restored a number of old buildings in Henley including the Guild Hall and the Yew Trees. William Fieldhouse left the title of Lord of the Manor jointly to his son Ernest Fieldhouse and his daughter Mrs Nancy Barnard.
