Today we launched our CART Hub.

Our members and researchers have many articles collected over the years and until now there has never been no easy way to share them with others.

CART has teamed up with 4Shared and set up a hosting platform for a these documents.

CART members are now able to access these files and also add their own to a variety of folders predefined by CART.

4Shared also have a FREE app which can be downloaded for most of the main smart phones so you can even access the data on the go!

To access this growing archive please sign into the members only website or join CART here.

CART researcher Ian Edwards has spent the last six months working on the Coleshill House Reborn project.

His ultimate goal is to deliver a photo realistic video walk through of Coleshill House which sadly burnt down in 1952.

Ian has already designed full CAD drawings of the house and outbuildings and is now working on images and video of the inside of the house.

You can see some of his work here

Keep your eyes on our site and this news page for my info.
