Penpont Heritage Centre


Opening times of the Local Heritage Centre -

At our recent Annual general Meeting, a decision was taken to concentrate on organising events and only open the Centre on Saturdays during July and August, 2.00 - 4.00pm. The reason for this is that over the last year, we found that people would come to a specific event rather than just drop into the Centre. this will be reviewed at next year's AGM.

Of course we are still  keen to have as many visitors as possible so arrangements to visit can be made by either telephoning Sophia on 01848 330411 or e-mailing:


Doors Open Day -

On Saturday, 7 September from 10.00am - 5.00pm and Sunday, 8 Sept from 12.00am to 5.00pm the Centre will be open as part of the nationwide Doors Open Days event, giving free access to hundreds of buildings.


Illustrated Talk by Morris Service - Marrburn

At 7.00pm on Friday 6th September there will be an illustrated talk by Morris Service in the Gladstone Hall.

The talk will be followed by discussion and light refreshments. Admission is free, though there will be the opportunity to make a donation. All are welcome.

Morris Service will talk on the sources of the Marrburn and its eventual destination. Morris was born in Penpont and knows much about the local area.
