We are a community organisation, founded in 2006. 

From Weds. 8th January 2020 we will be open twice a week at the Community Enterprise Centre at the junction of Church Street and Norwich Road - visit our 'News' page for more details.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?

  • 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 to the Heritage Centre at Soma House each Thursday from 09.30 to 15.30. Or you can contact us to discuss a specific visit. 
  • 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: info@attleboroughheritage.org.uk.
  • 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.

WHAT'S COMING UP?

Full details in our 'Events' list - but here's a summary:

Come and enjoy our Coffeee Morning - a chance to buy seasonal gifts, too -  Sat 23rd November and  on Sunday 24th November we'll be in the Church Hall again as part of the Attleborough Christmas Carnival events.

WE'RE IN PRINT!

We have produced nine booklets in "A Look at the History of Attleborough's Streets", all now available at just £2.00 each.  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.
