50 Treasures

Fifty Treasures of the West Midlands, a collection of less well known artistic objects and places across the area, has just been published by the Arts Society. Arts Society members from 17 local societies from across the West Midlands, including Royal Leamington Spa, were asked to suggest objects and places they love but which visitors to the area might miss, for inclusion in this new regional guide.

Included from the Warwick / Leamington area are Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden, Hill Close Gardens and the Sheldon Tapestry in Market Hall Museum in Warwick, the Czechoslovak Freedom Fountain in Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa and Chesterton Windmill.
