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.
Benjamin Beddome was born in the old Manse in Henley on the 23rd January 1717. He became the Baptist minister and prolific hymn writer. He became a Baptist Minister at Bourton on the Water in 1739 and died in 1795. His collection of 830 hymns were published posthumously in 1818.
