Warwickshire%20MapThe native county of William Shakespeare.  With its mediaeval castles, historic towns of Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa, Rugby and Kenilworth and its delightful countryside.  Stratford-upon-Avon is the provincial home of the Royal Shakespeare Company who perform in the three theatres near the River Avon.

There are many half-timbered buildings in the town, several of which have
associations with the great bard.  A few miles up the River Avon lies the town of Warwick with its magnificent mediaeval castle brought to life by Madame Tussaud's vignettes.

Warwickshire is a Heart of England county.  It features the city of Stratford-upon-Avon, where William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and died in 1616. Stratford is filled with monuments to The Bard, but none of the town's 21,000 residents has been able to dig up dirt on him, since history's most renowned playwright left behind no personal papers of any kind.

Shakespeare didnít have to look far for ideas, either. The subject of one of his
plays, Richard III, was slain in nearby Market Bosworth.

That historically preserved town radiates out from a central square where market has been held each Wednesday since the year 1285.  Warwickshire is also home to a world famous medieval castle.  Kenilworth Castle is linked to the legend of King Arthur.

"Warwickshire, a county in the west-midlands of England; bounded N. by Staffordshire, Derbyshire, and Leicestershire, E. by Northamptonshire, S. by Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, and W. by Worcestershire; greatest length, N. and S., 52 miles; greatest breadth, E. and W., 32 miles; area, 566,271 acres, population 737,339.

Warwickshire presents a pleasant undulating surface of hill and dale, watered by the Avon, Leam, and Tame. The climate is mild and healthy, and the soil, except some cold stiff clays on the higher grounds, is fertile. It consists chiefly of a strong red loam adapted for wheat and beans, or a sandy loam for barley and turnips. Much land is kept in permanent pasture for grazing. Formerly the county was thickly wooded (that part N. of the Avon being called the Forest of Arden), and fine timber is still abundant. Geologically it mainly belongs to the secondary formation. A coal field, 16 miles by 3 miles, extends from the neighborhood of Coventry to the border of Staffordshire, E. of Tamworth.

The principal minerals are coal, ironstone, limestone, freestone, blue flagstone, and fire-clay. The manufactures are carried on chiefly at Birmingham (hardware and silk goods) and Coventry (watches and ribbons). There are mineral springs at Leamington, Stratford on Avon, Ilmington, Southam, Willoughby, King's Newnham, &c.; The county is traversed in all directions by canals and railways." [Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles, 1887.]
