Come and visit us…

The Heritage Centre has a range of research materials, changing displays and a souvenir and bookshop. We have volunteers on hand to try to answer any questions you may have, and if we don’t know the answer, we’ll point you in the direction of someone who might.

We are open market days: Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 10.30 – 3.30pm and Thursdays 10am- 3pm and are situated inside St. Mary’s Parish Church, Market Place, on the left hand side past the cafe – see map below.

The Trust has produced displays around the town for many years with themes including the History of St. Mary’s Church, the 1940s, 1960s and a Victorian shop window.
