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

1st December 1952

On the 1st December 1952 Thomas Richard Perkins died at his home in Wolverhampton. He was the pharmacist in Henley from 1896 to 1945. He was actively involved in the town being a lay preacher at the Methodist Church and a trustee of the Henley Charities amongst other things. He also had an avid interest in Railways and wrote numerous articles. In 1932 he completed the unique task of travelling over the whole railway system of the British Isles, some 22,000 miles. "No one had done so before, with the curtailment of services, no one will ever do so again."

(Mr T. R. Perkins)
