  • Overview
  • More Info

The Heritage Centre is run by Harvey’s Foundry Trust – a charity that has for over 20 years been working to protect and promote Hayle’s rich heritage.

Our aim is to provide Hayle with a community focus, giving the Foundry site a cultural anchor that facilitates education and learning, increases tourism and provides our residents with a sense of their history.

The Heritage Centre houses a free exhibition that enables visitors to learn about the history of Hayle. We also have a yearly programme of exhibitions, events and workshops giving visitors a chance to explore Hayle’s history in more detail.
