The Smithy Heritage Centre

The Smithy Heritage Centre is now open on Sundays, 12noon-4pm!

A statement from Eccleston Parish Council:

Subject to further Government guidelines, the Smithy Heritage Centre is now open on Sundays from 12noon to 4pm from Sunday 23 May in line with Step 3 of the Roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions.

We look forward to welcoming the community back to enjoy socially distanced visits.

As the Smithy is “miniature, but magic”, we can only allow either four individuals or one household bubble in each of the rooms at any one time. Masks must be worn unless you have a medical exemption, and hand sanitiser is provided at the entrance. Please note, toilet facilities will not be available.

Admission is free.

Please consult the Smithy Heritage Centre website and social media (Twitter @smithyheritage, Facebook Smithy Heritage Centre) for any further announcements.

Visit the Smithy virtually instead!

You can now visit the Smithy Heritage Centre virtually, thanks to The Atkinson, Southport. They have kindly shared their equipment and enabled us to have the building and Objects of Desire exhibition scanned by Matt Dodd so that we could put it online for you to enjoy.

Take a look – just click on the picture above and the full scan of the building will load. You can click and drag to move through the displays and you can find out more about the objects by hovering over the little target symbols!
