Saltash Heritage Museum and Local History Centre. Saltash Heritage was formed in 1986 by the late Cornelius 'Corny' Hearl and a group of like minded local people who wanted to see the formation of a permanent museum for Saltash, and aims to collect, promote and research local history in Saltash and surrounding parishes and to maintain a museum in Saltash.
After many years' hard work and fund raising by the committee and members of Saltash Heritage, in 2000 one of the original aims of Saltash Heritage was met - the founding of a permanent museum in Saltash. Saltash Heritage has been awarded Accreditation by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council
