We can give a talk to your organisation on the various subjects,
loan a box of goodies for education or reminiscence,
or answer enquiries into the archives.
We are delighted to announce that in April 2012 plans for a new Heritage and Learning Centre in Downham's Old Fire Station have received Development money support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
A full application for funding the project has been submitted in August 2013 with a decision by the Heritage Lottery Fund due in November 2013
Approached from the west across wide acres of flat Fenland, Downham Market lies ahead on the first high ground.
Here our prehistoric ancestors had dry land, safe from flooding, on which to build their homes, raise their cattle and crops, and still enjoy the wealth of fish, eels and wildfowl from the fens.
Through exhibitions and displays the Heritage Centre tells the story of the area and its people through the ages.
Our grateful thanks to The Original Factory Shop which has selected us as their charity of the year. Please support our benefactors. www.theoriginalfactoryshop.co.uk
