William Roseblade Exhibition in the Leigh Chapel, Stoneleigh Church .

Local artist William Roseblade (1882-1967) lived in Coventry, but had a particular affection for Stoneleigh, and is buried in the churchyard. The Society has been given more than a dozen of his watercolours of village properties and landscapes. We hope that you will come along to the Leigh Chapel to enjoy the paintings; perhaps you will spot your own house!

Next Meeting: Tuesday September 24 7.30pm at the village hall.

Book launch – Back to School – a History of Stoneleigh School, by Sheila Woolf. All welcome.

Are you a member of a local society who would welcome a speaker? Please contact chair@stoneleighhistorysociety.org.uk for a brochure/further details.

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 chair@stoneleighhistorysociety.org.uk. All research is done by volunteers, and so if we are successful in helping you, a small donation to the society would be appreciated.
