The Halesworth and District Museum is housed in the town’s railway station and is packed with displays about local history.
For more than twenty years volunteers have been collecting and researching the history and archaeology of this fascinating corner of Suffolk. Spend some time with the displays which will take you across 10,000 years, from the earliest settlers in the Blyth Valley to the busy hub of malting, brewing and agriculture which was the town in Victorian times.
In 2015, New Cut Arts formed a partnership with the Halesworth & District Museum to bring the town’s industrial heritage back to life. Visitors the The Cut can learn about Halesworth’s Malt Story and how a small town in north-east Suffolk, became a centre for commercial malting in East Anglia between the 18th & 20th centuries.
