Welcome to the Wirksworth Heritage Centre website
The Heritage Centre is now closed as part of a three year re-development which includes moving the museum into a more accessible location in the town centre. As the first stage of this development, we have opened a cafe and shop called Websters at 31 St John's Street.
The Gift Shop and Gallery continues to sell work by local artists and crafts workers as well as cards, local history books, maps and guides from the new location of Websters on St John's Street.
We are a unique local history museum, housed in an old silk mill, who exist to tell "the Story of Wirksworth," a beautiful and ancient leadmining town in the heart of Derbyshire.
