The Heritage Centre is undergoing a major redevelopment project to relocate to a new venue to house our museum collection, exhibitions illustrating the history of Wirksworth, and to be the base for a new programme of events and activities.

When complete in April 2019 the centre will begin to bring the stories of this unique town to life – telling the history of Wirksworth folk, how their lives have been influenced by changing industries, famous characters, and the regeneration of the town as a centre for culture and the arts.

Websters Café and the Heritage Centre shop are now open daily.
