The Study Centre

The Society opened its Study Centre at Kenilworth, Warwickshire, in March 2010. The Study Centre houses the Society’s large Archive collections of documents, drawings, photographs and artefacts as well as the Society’s Library so that we can make them available for research to both Society members and the public. In addition to holding the catalogues of the collections, computers give access to extensive bibliographies of books and periodical articles and other databases of information on the LNWR. The photographs show the study area, library shelves and some of the artefacts on display around the room.

A PDF leaflet describing the collections, services and facilities available at the Study Centre, how to get there, how to book a visit (via telephone or this web site) and the planned opening dates for 2014 can be downloaded by clicking here. The planned open dates are listed on the leaflet and are incorporated into the booking web page.

The Archive Catalogue, the Archive Drawing Catalogue and Library List can be viewed or downloaded elsewhere on this web site, but if you are still not sure whether we have any material that might help in your research to make a visit worthwhile, please email the Archivist giving details of the sort of information you are seeking.

To book a visit by email click here.

Please make your booking at least a week in advance. Your booking will be confirmed (or not) by email, if a study seat is free on the open date selected.
