Heritage Workshop Centre is based at 80a High Street, Wildes Score, Lowestoft NR32 1XN, where you can see the interactive model of our lost village for just £2.50 per person. We take school groups and private bookings tailored around your needs, just e-mail or call 01502 581601 to book. Opening times Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 4pm.
The shop is now part of the Lowestoft Heritage Centre. The Lowestoft Heritage Centre is a self-funding charity with the shop helping to support it selling stock kindly donated by very helpful and generous people. We try to remain under the umbrella of ‘Heritage’, selling mainly secondhand books, pictures, knick-knacks, documentary videos etc., the most popular being Old Lowestoft and anything about the two World Wars.
Major Park Plan Is Inspring Ideas
The local community are bursting with ideas for turning the East of England Park into a contemporary and heritage inspired park.
The East of England Park, known locally as North Denes, is located between the Birds Eye Factory and North Denes Caravan Park and includes North Beach and Lowestoft Ness.
Suffolk Just Got Smaller
April 1974 saw Suffolk lose more villages to its northern neighbour, as Government boundary changes took another bite out of the county.
Belton, Bradwell, Burgh Castle, Hopton, Fritton and St Olaves were all places on a map that were in Suffolk – but that all changed this week, 40 years ago – with Norfolk extending its boundary south once more.
