Visit our exhibition and join guided tours of the Heritage and Rural Skills Centre as part of our last Coleshill Village Open Day of the year.
Our current exhibition explores the legacy of the creative people who made their home on the Coleshill estate or drew inspiration from it. Fragments salvaged from Coleshill House after it was lost to fire in 1952 reveal glimpses of the creativity and skill that went into its design and construction. Tools from the Home Farm and working estate demonstrate the innovative agricultural and rural practices carried out here.
Objects and images represent some of the artists and designers who lived and worked here, from designer William Morris to sculptor Michie Herbert. You can also discover more about the craftspeople who work from studios here today, and find out why it's so important to keep heritage skills alive.
As part of the Village Open Day, you can also see the inside of the old Flour Mill on the river Cole and take an adventure down into a Second World War replica Operational Bunker.
