Welcome to the Civic Society

We have secured funding to set up the Roman Mancetter Exhibition in St Peters Church, Mancetter. We created a canal-side commemorative garden beside the Coleshill Road Bridge. We restored and enhanced Bentley Pound, and placed an interpretation board there and at Bentley Chapel We’ve published guides and books, including Once Upon a Time in Atherstone; A Pleasantly Placed Town, Roman Mancetter, The Atherstone Town and Country Trails, and A Short Guide to Roman Mancetter (revised 2016) We surveyed the historic core of the town and researched the history of 192 buildings, funded by £30,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Nationwide. The database can be searched online at www.ourwarwickshire.org.uk. (Under ‘Atherstone House Histories’) We completed an EU Leader-funded project on Roman Mancetter, which culminated in a conference, at the University of Warwick, on Queen Boudica’s last battle.
