Coronavirus update

Taking into account the health and well-being of our employees, we have taken the decision to close the Heritage Centre and Café Shrub at the end of today (Monday 23rd March) until further notice. We believe this is the best way to help support social distancing and keep everyone as healthy as possible for as long as possible.


The car park and grounds continue to be open for the trails and walks around the centre.


Thank you to all our staff and customers for your continued support for the centre and café and we look forward to seeing you all again as soon as it is safe for us to reopen. We will announce any changes on social media and the website as usual.
