Thanks Mark for your really useful advice. I was born and lived in Warwick for 33years and am now luckily only an hour away so not too far to travel.
Thanks again

Hi

Warwick record office does have a camera stand- but not much use with a camera phone tbh.

They do charge a daily rate for a camera permit at around 8 for the day

Many of the maps in the archive have been professionally digitised on cameras which have 3 minute shutter speeds & then the sections digitally stitched together - thus the fantastic clarity that Mark mentions

The office do offer a digital service, though this can be slow, it would produce decent quality photographs for turning into prints.

Hth

Thanks Lemontree, I visited on Monday and you were all correct, the lighting makes it nigh on impossible to take a good photo, not helped that they were nt actual photographs but copies?sandwiched between shiny pieces of paper!
Still they were lovely to see and I will try to get a couple of copies if possible.
Thanks everyone for their help
