Industrial Heritage at its best displayed in the buidings where it all happened.
okt. 2019
This Heritage Centre tells the story of Hayle and its inhabitants over the past few thousand years. It is very thought provoking regarding Hayles geographical position and its relationship with both land and sea. A sheltered haven from the Atlantic Ocean attracted settlement and along with the local mineral wealth it became a significant player in the Industrial Revolution with Engineers like Harvey setting the benchmark for heavy engineering. His links with other prominent British Engineers of the time influenced the direction of both National and International development. Hayles manufacturing centre was inextricably linked to the Port development and the shipping which both used it and was also constructed here. The industrial heritage story continues up until the current period with the reason that a Power Station was constructed here.
In all, a very surprising history captured and well presented by its team of volunteers. Displaying it in the John Harvey Building pays a permanent tribute to his efforts and showcases the contributions of the people who worked and lived in the area.
A very worthwhile visit and thanks to Sharon for her personal time in showing me around.

It is what it is....
aug. 2019
As I say in the title, this is what it is, a little heritage centre.

As it's above offices, it's a little hidden away, but it's clear they have had a cash injection recently and had some modern displays that were interesting enough. There wasn't a great deal of information about the wider history of the area, more of a whistle stop tour.

We visited for a lunchtime activity to make some iron age axes, based on one in the collection. This was run by a combination of staff and volunteers and was free to attend.

All in all, it's a nice little stop off if you're passing, but parking isn't great and it is better set up for the locals rather that tourists, which I totally approve of, but it doesn't have much of a tourist draw for me. If you're in Hayle anyway and have an hour to kill though, this is the place for you..

Fun for some of the family

We found the museum interesting, but small and informations lacking in some areas. It has many interesting artefacts, but doesn’t explain some of the more intriguing ones. For a free 30 minutes of distraction, it fairs alright.

Fascinating
aug. 2019 • Par
Visited before, but this year there is a lot more to see. It is a free exhibition, but donations are accepted to keep the centre going. You start with the prehistoric area, with dressing up for children and fantastic finds from local sites. There is a sample of a dig and a small dig area for children to have a go. The Cunaide stone is also in this part of the exhibition. Into the Drawing room and the history of Hayle is well laid out and explained. There is a lot of history in this grade 2 listed building!

History buffs - do not miss

The Heritage Centre is on Foundry Square near the railway station, so very well placed to be your first stop in Hayle The staff are welcoming and talk knowledgeably about the exhibits, and share their interest and enthusiasm, which is a great start.. The pre-history exhibits were excavated when a new housing estate was build recently, and tell of a settlement thousands of years ago that ultimately became part of today's World Heritage Site. Teh 19th Century industrial exhibition is fascinating, including the role of the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the reach of the Cornish Beam engine s[reading around the UK. The oral histories are a must, and the comfy chair and niche set these off beautifully. The whole is beautifully curated - and I write as someone who frequents the British Museum and London Art Galleries. The history of the two towns of Hayle, which grew up around two rival foundries, must surely have given rise to some historical novels. This centre is an integral part of the history of Cornish mining and engineering, and worth a visit.

A great introduction to a fascinating little town.

The Heritage Centre is near the station, and we called in before starting our coast walk. It is a fascinating place full of information about Hayle, which is an overlooked and underrated little town. I was interested in the industrial history of the area and could have spent longer looking around. We purchased a couple of books and booklets which helped us better understand the area as we walked. I will be making another visit here for a better look around.

Superb curating. Gem of a little museum / heritage centre.

We had time to kill in Hayle so wandered into this place. Despite having little interest in mining etc, we managed to spend 90 mins in this small heritage centre.
The story was told so well, with lots of interactive displays. For example, one corner of a room was an armchair with wallpaper and carpets with a radio on the table. When you press one button on the radio, it plays a recording of someone who lived in the area.
Whoever curated this exhibition is very very good.
Lovely friendly volunteers throughout as well.
Really deserves to be supported. Its free in and they suggest a donation of £1. You couldnt spend £1 better!

A nice place that has opened up this year, so me and the wife popped in. The young gentleman on reception was very friendly and told us about the museum and then about local places of interest. A nice visit and a addition to the Town of Hayle
