Next meeting:February 28thPeter Walters on “The Story of Coventry”. We welcome back Peter Walters whose book of the same name was published in 2013. Peter has written extensively about the history of Coventry and used to write for the Coventry Telegraph.


The Society was formed in January 2011 with the principal aim of discovering and recording information about the village’s rich history. Since then we have undertaken several projects, largely relating to significant buildings in the village; we have a thriving membership.

New members will be warmly welcomed to our meetings. Please see our Membership section. All meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month, at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.

If you are unable to attend meetings we hope that you will find something of interest on our website. We would be delighted to hear from you with any recollections of life in Stoneleigh in times past.

If you are researching your family’s history we will be pleased to help, though it may take some time!

Please contact the Chairman, Sheila Woolf, in the first instance, if you would like to know more, via
