Brandon’s Heritage Centre is located within the old Fire Station, which was modified 1990s. The Fire Station is now in a purpose built building opposite the Heritage Centre. The Heritage Centre is small but aims to pack as much of Brandon’s heritage as is possible, and is managed by volunteers. From the flints, to fur, to forestry, wartime, bronze age and refreshing ‘pop-up’ exhibitions.
In the beginning …
Brandon is full of history. Probably most famous of all is the Brandon people’s relationship with the environment around the town, namely flints and fur. More so in Brandon than any other town. So it made sense to have a central location in town to display, inspire and engage with the community about the town’s Heritage – a Heritage Centre!
