The Warwickshire Industrial Archaeology Society was formed in 1989 with the aim of promoting the study, recording and preservation of the industrial archaeology of Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull. The Society is affiliated to the Association for Industrial Archaeology. The main activity of the Society is the regular monthly meeting, with talks by visiting speakers, although additional visits to sites within Warwickshire and beyond are arranged on an occasional basis. The Society has a thriving membership - from dedicated specialists to enthusiastic amateurs - and is always keen to welcome new members. If you would like to come along as a visitor first please do so. There is a small charge to cover refreshments. The WIAS website welcomes contributions & comments. All issues of the WIAS newsletter are available and are added quarterly. Copies of the WIAS original publication, RETORT, have also been added. There is a comprehensive list of WIAS events and other meetings of interest
The newsletters, Retort magazine and some articles are in Adobe pdf format. If you need Adobe Reader click on the logo - it's free!

The WIAS Database - Can You Help?
The database project has now reached the stage where we need your help! At this stage the society would just like to know if you are willing to assist – and this can be done by completing a form available at WIAS meetings, completing the on line form here and now or downloading the printable pdf form and returning it.
You may know a specific industry well, or a particular location, or you may simply wish to be directed to sites that need to be recorded. The method of recording will be via the WIAS Database Information Sheet, which will be available both in hard copy and on the WIAS website when we reach the next stage.
