Important information regarding document production times
Due to further reductions in staffing levels within the public service team, we will unfortunately be unable to produce documents from the strongrooms over the lunchtime period between 12pm and 2.15pm, though the searchroom will remain open. Some other services may not be available at this time, for example, photocopying.

Manorial Documents register
Warwickshire County Record Office is pleased to announce the launch of an online resource that will link users to thousands of listings for Manorial Documents, the most detailed source for medieval village life in Warwickshire. Records survive for Atherstone from as early as 1250, but with 5,000 entries there is a strong chance that records for your local manor may also have been discovered.
The project was funded in Warwickshire by The National Archives and the register is free to use online.
