Penpont Heritage Centre


Opening times of the Local Heritage Centre -

Due to the COVID restictions, the Centre is closed for the foreseeable future. For further information about possible future plans, please contact us. 

It may be possible to arrange to visit by appointment, please telephone Sophia Harkness on 01848 330411 or 07760700141.

At our 2018/2019 AGM, it was decided to concentrate on organising events and to only open the Centre on Saturdays during July and August, 2.00 - 4.00pm. The reason for this was that we found that people would come to a specific event rather than just drop into the Centre. We intend to review this at future AGMs.

Previous events

Doors Open Day - September 2020

The Centre was part of the nationwide Doors Open Days online event, giving free access to hundreds of buildings. An excellent video guide to the Centre was very kindly developed by Luke and John McKay.
