Desborough Heritage

Desborough Heritage

Desborough Heritage Centre houses displays covering the history of Desborough from very early settlements to the 19th and 20th centuries. Come in and look around, or spend some time, if you wish, chatting to the museum’s enthusiastic volunteers about Desborough history, buildings and people. Desborough has been an important place of settlement for thousands of years. Remains have been found here from the stone age, 10,000 years ago. The Centre holds an extraordinary wealth of visual information about the town. Visitors will see how the townscape and town life have changed dramatically, even within living memory, with the demoltion of many of its 17th and 18th century ironstone buildings.

If you are in Desborough,  pop into DHC and record your childhood memories, 1940s to 1960s for our latest exhibition.   And see what we show of 2000 years of history in this settlement.   Don’t miss the room with those fascinating stained glass windows of 1903:  ask our volunteers who will delight to talk with you!
