The Horden Heritage Centre opened its doors in August 2009 showcasing displays of local memorabilia. Our Heritage displays are now in three rooms on the Upper Floors of the Green Leaf Cafe in Horden Welfare Park.

We meet on Thursday mornings from 10-12 noon also in the Green Leaf Cafe, Upper Floors, Horden Welfare Park, Horden Peterlee Co. Durham SR8 4PE

It is hoped that local people will add to the collection through donations and loans and that there will be visitor interest including school visits.
