Welcome to the Washburn Heritage Centre

‘A hidden gem’ run by volunteers to celebrate the heritage of the wonderful Washburn Valley. A stunning extension to Fewston Church, it’s free to come in!

The Centre features exhibitions about the heritage of the Valley, and we run an extensive programme of events including walks, workshops, talks and courses. At weekends there is a popular Tea Room featuring a wide selection of homemade cakes. The Centre is fully accessible and is available for hire.

Following his talk on Dry Stone Walling last year, Brian will take us on a journey through the history of Enclosure of the land. Where and why did it begin? Who were the landowners? How did Enclosure shape the built landscape of the Valley as we know it today. Maybe some intriguing local tales!

Light refreshments served.  Cost £10 member, £12 non-member.
