The cellar of the Almshouses has been completely renovated to house changing
exhibitions focusing on the cultural, industrial and agricultural history of the town.
The project has been a year in the planning, and has already received over a thousand
visitors since it was opened at the beginning of the year.
The official opening was attended by over 50 people, including members of the Bedworth
Society and the local council. The town crier for Nuneaton and Bedworth, Paul Gough,
cried the news before the guests.
The project has been co-ordinated by the Bedworth Society, who received £40,000 from
the Nicholas Chamberlaine Trust to help fund the project. They have also worked hard to
raise an additional £10,000 from local residents.
Forthcoming exhibitions for 2000 include:
||Impact of War
The project will be open every Market day (Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays)
between 10.30am and 1pm. Further details can be obtained from Society members:
