Founded in 2001, we are a group of local people sharing an interest in the history of Studley.
WHAT ARE OUR AIMS?
• To encourage interest in local history.
• Discover the comings and goings of everyday life in Studley, from early times to the present day.
• Safeguarding of local history material. Creation of a digital Studley Archive.
• Publish our findings so that the knowledge may be shared and enjoyed by others.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS?
Research archives & publications such as births, marriages, burial registers, voters lists, newspapers, wills, inventories, census returns; property documents, photographs, invoices; gravestones, memorial plaques; maps, reports from residents able to call upon their own and their forebears remembered histories.

This website and the accompanying signage around the village were funded by the Studley community. From 2018-2019 a crowdfunding campaign backed by a Warwickshire County Council towns project successfully raised over £38,000 for Studley. A project group of volunteers brought the website and signage to life and it is hoped their legacy will serve to promote and highlight the bright and diverse community that we live in.
