Local History







Since our formation in November 1998 the Warsash Local History Society has been collecting an extensive archive of photographs, maps, books and other artefacts. In May 2011 we opened the Warsash Heritage Centre as a home for these resources, and to provide access to them for members of the public. We hope that people will use this resource to support research into the history of our village, and into topics of their own personal interest.

The Heritage Centre is located at 24 Shore Road. We aim to open Thursday and Friday from 10:30 to 12:30 and 2.00 to 4.00, and Saturday mornings.

Since the Centre is manned on a volunteer basis we cannot always guarentee these opening times. If you are travelling a long way to visit then please e-mail the Centre Manager beforehand to confirm that the Centre will be open when you arrive. If you would like to visit the Centre outside of our normal opening hours then please e-mail to arrange a mutually convenient time. You can also call the Centre during opening hours on 07938 567506.

We are always looking for volunteers to join the team. If you would like to offer time to help ensure that the Centre is open as frequently as possible then please contact the Centre Manager.

If you are interested in seeing our collection then please feel free to come in for a chat or just to browse. All of our many photographs are available to view, and copies can be made for a small fee. The Centre also has small items of merchandise and local history booklets to sell.

When the Centre is closed you can take a look at our window display, which changes regularly and is much admired by passers by.
