Kenilworth History 2020

The latest KHAS annual booklet Kenilworth History 2021: Research into Local History is now available, priced £5 or free to members.

Our contributors have been very busy during lockdown. This year’s edition comes in at a weighty 100 pages; roughly twice the length of previous editions.

Kenilworth History 2021 is now available for purchase from Kenilworth Books in Talisman Square (You can order and collect books from the bookshop and they can deliver locally for free or post out if you live further afield). It will also be available from the Abbey Barn museum, when it reopens, and it will be available for purchase at KHAS meetings, when they eventually re-commence.

Kenilworth History on CD – 1981 to 2015

A CD containing every issue of Kenilworth History from 1981 to 2015 (inclusive) is now available. It has on it also a file of all the ‘Tables of Content’, six spreadsheets of those contents sorted by date, author, title, and three subject categories, and one continuous file of all the KHs so that it can subjected to a wordsearch from beginning to end – a really valuable resource for any researcher. The Society is charging £5 a CD, which, if you consider that people in the Town bought over 60 copies of KH2015 alone for £5 from the Bookshop, is incredibly good value for money:
