Warwickshire's Past Unlocked

Welcome to Warwickshire's Past Unlocked

Our online catalogue includes descriptions of the records we hold at Warwickshire County Record Office. Our collections cover almost 900 years of Warwickshire's history, and range from parchment deeds and illuminated manuscripts through to maps, photographs and film, as well as volumes and ledgers recording the business and administrative activities of the county.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL USERS: Archive catalogues are rich in information but they can be complex to search. We strongly advise that you visit our Help Page to ensure that you gain the most from your visit. We regularly run free courses at the Record Office on the use of our catalogue, details of which can be found on our 'Whats On' page.
