Grampound with Creed Heritage Centre

Grampound with Creed Heritage Centre

A small village with a BIG history. The purpose of the Grampound with Creed Heritage Project and Centre is to tell the story of the countless individuals who have made their mark on this place since ancient times and to ensure that this knowledge is recorded and passed on to future generations.

A Heritage Centre comprising a short film about the locality, a collection of digital photographs, audio recordings, storyboards and in-depth research material is housed in the historic Town Hall to which visitors are welcome. The Heritage Project was initiated by the Grampound with Creed Parish Council, which continues to support the group of local enthusiasts who now carry the initiative forward.

The Heritage Centre holds a small collection of artefacts of which only some can be displayed at any one time. Our most important collection is of items to do with the tanning industry that was important in Grampound from at least as far back as the medieval period until the beginning of this century. We have a number of hand tools and some items produced in the Manor Tannery. In addition to the tannery items we hold a collection of china depicting local scenes and some regalia and others pieces relating to the Oddfellows Friendly Society that was once very active in our village.
