Heritage Centre – 2016 Opening Times


The Heritage Centre  will re-open for our third season on Monday 11 April, and will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 till 4, and 10 to 1 on Saturdays.

We are opening a little later than in previous years as the back room is currently undergoing a refit with the installation of the digitizing equipment and will have purpose built work space, bookshelves and some new equipment, all thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund Grant.   Further refurbishment – including the installation of an interactive touch screen in the front room – is scheduled for the latter part of the year.  The screen will be used to show the results of our researches.

This season we will also have some new information on display:  Colin Haynes has kindly let us have copies of some research he has done  on – Colyton’s Inns, Pubs & Beer House.  Colyton’s Oak Bark Tannery.  Folletts – Grocers, Ironmongers and Iron Founders.  All three works will be in the Heritage Centre for people to browse through.  And we will have a resident medieval merchant resplendent in the costume kindly made and presented to the Centre by John Forrrester Addie!
