Situated at the rear of the Village Memorial Hall, Chemist Lane, the Heritage Centre houses a large display of photographs of the village from the 19th century through to the 1960s.
Long Melford Heritage Centre was created following the ‘Big Dig’ in July 2011 to show the artifacts and items found during the dig as well as showcasing the history of Long Melford.
Display cases show artefacts found locally from the Paleolithic stone age when hunter gatherers first settled in this part of the Stour valley, then on to the Roman occupation of the village when it was a Romano British small town, and also Medieval artefacts from when Long Melford was a thriving Wool Town.
To commemorate the centenary of WW1, the centre has a four year rolling program of displays focused on the 800 men and women of the village who fought in that war.
