Welcome to Attleborough Heritage Group

Telephone: 01953 455877


WE HAVE MOVED! Join us and help us to help you preserve yesterday's memories for tomorrow...

We welcome you to visit us in our new home at the COMMUNITY ENTERPRISE CENTRE (at the junction of Church Street and Norwich Road, Attleboroug - see picture).

From Weds. 8th January 2020 we will be open here TWO MORNINGS A WEEK  on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.30 - 12.30. You can also arrange to visit us by appointment - see below.


  • Access to a considerable archive of photographs, documents and artifacts related to Attleborough's industrial and commercial history. You can browse some of these in our 'Gallery' or you are welcome to visit us.  Have a look also at our 'Publications' page for items that you can view online or borrow.
  • We welcome new members and visitors - and if you can't make it during opening hours (9.30-12.30 Wednesdays and Fridays from 8th January 2020), you can contact us to discuss a specific visit - see full contact details below.
  • Four extra SATURDAY HERITAGE RESEARCH DAYS: see 'What's Coming Up?' below.
  • Resources for family history researchers: we have the transferred records of burials in the Town Cemetery into a digital seachable format and we have also digitised gravestone inscriptions in St Mary's church. For specific enquiries just e-mail details of the Attleborough death or burial you would like to trace:
  • We have a regular programme of illustrated presentations open to members and the general public. Details of these, offered twice a year, can be found on our 'Events' page.


Our ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held on Friday 31st January - see 'Events' for full details.

EXTRA HERITAGE RESEARCH DAYS: four extra chances to come and find out more about local or family history on SATURDAYS when we will be in St Mary's Church Hall from 09.30 - 11.15 on 1st February, 22nd February, 7th March and 16th May. 


We have produced ten booklets in "A Look at the History of Attleborough's Streets", all now available at just £2.00 each. The latest, HARGHAM ROAD, was published in December 2019. We have a stock of these at our Centre, we sell them at our events, or you can visit our "Publications" page for more details and an order form if you'd like to buy by post. Christine Williams, the editor of this very successful series, is always happy to receive information about places and characters which contribute to the history of the streets and byways of the town.

This Website is dedicated to the memory of Jane Lane, a founding member of the Group whose wish was for the successful growth of a Community organisation to safeguard the Heritage of Attleborough. Jane died before she could see the outcome of her contribution and we trust she would have been proud of this site and its reflection of her wishes.

OUR 2020 AGM will be held on 31st January - see 'Events' for full details. We look forward to seeing you.

COME AND SEE US IN OUR NEW VENUE - From 8th January 2020, we will be in the Ellingham Suite on the first floor of Attleborough Community & Enterprise Centre (at the junction of Church Street and Norwich Road), on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9.30 until 12.30.
