History of Westwood Heath
We would love to hear from anyone who has some history of Westwood Heath.
We have now set up a dedicated Westwood Heath History Group website which contains many more details and snippets.
One reference we have uncovered so far is the use of Westwood Heath as a temporary aerodrome for the British Empire Air Display Tour of 1936.
The history of the Westwood Club goes back before 1840 and there is further evidence of very old settlements in the vicinity.
Warwick University have written an article on campus archaeology which gives some interesting insights to the locality.
There is a history of Westwood Heath together with an animated map on the Burton Green Website.
In 2018 we researched fallen soldiers from the area to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One. Their stories can be found here.
We have also started a section to honour veterans from the services who are related to current Westwood Heath residents and their stories are at this link.
