King’s Cliffe Heritage Centre

The King’s Cliffe Heritage Centre

On Wednesday 26th of October a number of members of the Yarwell Mill History Group enjoyed an interesting & informative guided tour of King’s Cliffe  Heritage Centre.

    Sue, the curator & our guide explained that the Heritage Centre’s collection is housed in the building which was originally the village’s charitable boys school, set amongst the Alms Houses, commissioned in 1749, & placed opposite an earlier girls school, on the outskirts of the village.

  Inside we were entertained with explanations & descriptions of some of the items in the eclectic display of artifacts & donations, as well as ‘finds’ from around the village. Sue ably used these items to describe & colour a picture of life within the village, during its long & noteworthy history. A regrettably short, but fascinating hour or so, but well worth a return visit.

Several further members joined us for an enjoyable & sociable lunch at the Cross Keys Inn, at the heart of this lovely & interesting village.
